David Choe is a favorite at Upper Playground as we’ve witnessed his progression as an artist over the years, through his recurrent involvement with the company. In this interview from the “Dithers” DVD, you get a glimpse of the man behind the art, and the cleverness you witness as he speaks becomes amplified when viewed in the context of his masterful paintings. Much more than an artist, David Choe has a personality to match his talent. Watch the interview from "Dithers," available for the first time to the public for free, on Walrus TV.

Dragatomi is pleased to present “Rear Naked Choke,” a solo exhibition of new works by Patrick Francisco, a New York artist known as much for his promotional antics as for his painterly approach to canvas and vinyl toys.
