Chor Boogie was raised in Oceanside California a small city by the sea with in San Diego county. 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. As a self made artist his drive and his passion fueled his study from renaissance artists such as Michelangelo, Da Vinci, and Rembrandt to more modern artists like Klimt, Van Gogh, Dali, combining a street culture of modern day spray paint "mentors" such as Phase2, Vulcan, Coma, Sake, Apex, Pose2, and in turn helped guide his lifestyle into a life it self.
