I don’t know if this is the official poster, but I sure love David Choe‘s version. I can’t wait for this. At the first GR Biennale, my boyfriend and I saw Choe’s ginormous mural and fell in love. Before then, we had no idea who he was. Now we’re fanboy/fangirl status…the circle is complete, I guess.
