'With his innovative techniques and spiritual color philosophies, Chor Boogie is the king'... SAN FRANCISCO BAY GUARDIAN
'If you ever visited or live in the Bay Area, you've seen at least one of Chor Boogie's striking murals. Boogie's work ends up looking more like fine art, which is pretty impressive considering he paints solely in aerosol'. . . JUXTAPOZ
'Internationally acclaimed virtuoso of spray-paint Chor Boogie presents his solo show: Romanticism, where imagination and emotion meet the healing power of color therapy. Having emerged, in part, from the world of 'Graffiti Art' Chor profoundly expounds on the genre in style, technique, form, composition, and conceptual underpinnings, as he can no longer be simply categorized as such. Viewers often find it nearly unbelievable that his masterful works are created almost solely from spray paint'. . . NBC
