BLOOM BASH Featured Artist: Modern Hieroglyphics of Chor Boogie
Chor Boogie is a painter, muralist, and color shaman. He has been painting with the aerosol spray medium for over 20 years and has built an astonishing career traveling the world creating timeless monumental murals including the Olympics in China and a segment of the Berlin Wall in the name of peace and freedom. His recent 30x60-foot commission of Michael Jackson and Madonna in the heart of Times Square earned him the distinction being named one of the best street artists in the United States. In 2011, the Torrance Art Museum named him one of Americas rising stars. His studio work shows a darker side of society and a lighter side of LOVE.
