Artist Spotlight : Chor Boogie

"Chor Boogie, born Jason Hailey in 1979. He was handed a paint brush at the mere age of five from his kindergarten grade school teacher, started painting and fell in love with the creative process immediately, telling his teacher "When I grow up I am going to be an artist." Thus overtime Chor Boogie was exposed to the spray paint medium along with many other trials and tribulations that changed his life and formed this learning lesson we live in. 

A deep spiritual healing and recovery from addiction nearly a decade ago transformed his life and has had a major impact in his style of color therapy and techniques of creative innovativeness. Chor Boogie moved to San Francisco in 2007 and took the leap to pursue a full time career in art. His visionary works ignites the hearts and minds of the masses world wide. There is no color he does not use. He creates a wide range of forms pioneering his inverted can technique which slows down the pressure of the paint and creates dense, rich tones giving room for more detail on a broad perspective. Chor Boogie's dynamic range of artistic styles can manifest as soulful, deftly shaded portraits to color therapy, geometric elements adding up to half hidden faces, and a minds eye or two to encourage you to see internally and externally."

     I am not an artist myself. I don't have that creative mind and talent that many do. But ohhh do I appreciate it. And I especially love graffiti art and spray paint work. So I was very drawn to Chor's work when I saw it, and wanted to feature it here on the page. So take a look. Hope you enjoy it too :)
