Chor Boogie’s colorful paintings are attracting A-list celebrities, art galleries and museums. Originally from San Diego, the artist known as Chor Boogie currently resides in San Francisco but is an internationally known artist and has traveled extensively to exhibit his work around the world.
Chor’s most recent focus - bringing art to underserved communities. The National Endowment for the Arts has awarded the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art with a grant. The purpose of this project is to support a public art and artist residency project led by guest artist Chor Boogie. Boogie will engage with area youth in a multi-week artist residency that will incorporate workshops, artist-led talks, performances, and other education opportunities and will culminate in a large street mural in the Boyes Hot Springs area of Sonoma Valley California. As part of a culminating event, the students will be paired with an adult mentor and give a presentation about their creative learning process.

Chor is also one of the International Artists that will be featured at the 2019 premier exhibit of the new Street Art Today Museum in Amsterdam. Once open, this will be the largest street art museum in the world to date.
