graffiti artist david choe was hired to decorate the original facebook hq in 2005. this was before Facebook was even slightly established, let alone the global mecca it is now. choe was offered either $60,000 or stock shares in the company- he opted for the shares. his reasoning was that he simply "liked to gamble." seven years later he has what is estimated in the "hundred millions." his issue? he already did what he wanted before he made this money, and now he's aware that he can't buy back his privacy. his graffiti is unique and inspired by his slightly nomadic lifestyle which includes stints in a korean prison, street life and general freedom.
