Artist Proof: Chor Boogie is an aerosol artist whose work is considered ‘Color Therapy for the Soul’. His art ranges from soulful, deftly shaded portraits to color therapy, with geometric elements adding up to half-hidden faces, and a mind’s eye or two to encourage you to see internally and externally. He’s been a great friend of mine for sometime, starting back a few years back. He’s a very talented guy, with a great personality and after surviving a recent stabbing while painting a mural in SF his art has grown even stronger with his recorvery. As you will see, Chor is a man of few, carefully selected words… So we will let his work do the talking for him, as you will see, each one of his pieces, is worth more than a 1000 words.
