A recent transplant from San Diego, Chor Boogie is making a name for himself in San Francisco.  From his studio in the Mission District on South Van Ness he creates original pieces with spray paints and bold colors.  The artist said he uses an inverted-can technique to get the intricacies of small details, and the colors he selects are meant to be therapeutic.

The 29-year-old said he is happy to present a solo project after a long tour on the East Coast with the Albus Cavus collection.  His recent show, Romanticism, will be on display at Project One Gallery and Lounge in Potrero until January 3, 2009.
