"This was the first piece I painted in San Francisco and it was my gift to the city for opening it's doors to me. Basically this creation came out this way because I was trying to find a style, I and needed to see something original on the streets, from the streets. It's my most expressive style, it's the streets screaming. It's love. It's pain. It's positive & negative emotions at the same time which brings it balance. I came up with the title Purgatory because that's the balance between heaven or hell, positive or negative, good or bad. You will be stuck there until you choose." - Chor Boogie

“If you ever visited or live in the Bay Area, you’ve seen at least one of Chor Boogie’s striking murals. Boogie’s work ends up looking more like fine art, which is pretty impressive considering he paints solely in aerosol” - Juxtapoz
“Internationally acclaimed virtuoso of spray-paint Chor Boogie presents his solo show: Romanticism, where imagination and emotion meet the healing power of color therapy. Having emerged, in part, from the world of “Graffiti Art” Chor profoundly expounds on the genre in style, technique, form, composition, and conceptual underpinnings, as he can no longer be simply categorized as such. Viewers often find it nearly unbelievable that his masterful works are created almost solely from spray paint” - NBC
