Street artist David Choe, who calls himself “homeless” and an art school drop out on his website has certainly caught the media’s attention of late for not only his creative paintings and murals, but also his business-savvy frame of mind. As almost everyone knows at this point, after designing murals for Facebook’s corporate offices, Choe opted to be paid in company shares instead of receiving cash on the spot. Fast forward to 2012, Choe is estimated to earn $200 million from the agreement. Talk about saying goodbye to being a starving artist. For more on Choe, visit: http://davidchoe.com/about.html.
