Choe, who is worth an estimated $200 million, helped the kids of “A Place Called Home,” a non-profit organization in Los Angeles, paint a mural in a devastated area of South L.A. Choe has created artwork for Linkin Park and Jay-Z, and he is most known for his transformation of Facebook headquarters. The acclaimed artist wanted to give back to the community he was once a part of, having grown up in Koreatown. The wall features characters the kids created and designed with the help of Choe.
