Since Facebook announced a $5 billion USD IPO and creating a bunch of brand new generation of nouveau riche, there is one Asian American artist making quite a bit of news lately as it seems this story comes with a bit of an artistic discovery. Noted artist, David Choe, is in line to make over $200 million USD for his stake in the company after choosing stock over monetary payment when he was hired by then Facebook President, Sean Parker, to paint their first offices in Palo Alto, California back in 2005. It’s unknown whether Choe has already sold off portions of his stocks prior to the filing of the IPO, but one thing is for certain – Choe’s artwork could provide more money from his paintings.
Everyone is going to want a piece of him now! He’s like the mondern day Andy Warhol! and He’s ASIAN!!!!
