Lazarides Gallery has announced that David Choe's exhibition - Nothing to Declare - will open on April 23rd, 2010. Choe has been hard at work creating new paintings, drawings, and sculptures for the 8,000 sq ft space in Beverly Hills. If you can't make it out to the opening, the show will run through May 23rd, 2010.
Driven by an unquenchable thirst for life, Choe saps every possible drop of experience - good or bad - out of his tremendous adventures. From incarceration in a Tokyo jail to hitchhiking down the Mississippi River via paddleboat, freight train hopping city to city and hunting for dinosaurs in the Congo jungle, David weaves these encounters into his work projecting a dramatic and fantastical, often sexually explicit, vision of the world.
