Graffiti artist to become Millionaire from Facebook IPO
Graffiti artist, David Choe, painted Facebook the offices in 2005 and was offered cash or the equivalent in shares. Now his shares are predicted to cash in at 200 million.
Although Mr Choe reportedly considered the idea of Facebook ‘ridiculous and pointless’ at the time of his painting, he took the stock when offered the option, reported the New York Times.
Now he could end up being paid more for the job than Damien Hirst got at a record-breaking 2008 Sotheby’s auction. Now a successful artist, Mr Choe refused to be interviewed about his windfall.
