Dirty Hands: The Art & Crimes of David Choe (2010)

Starring: David Choe

An outlaw artist whose violent, phantasmagoric, and unapologetically sexual work is both highly controversial and deeply challenging, David Choe rose from notorious street artist and porn-magazine illustrator to prolific painter, muralist, and graphic artist -- but his evolution from underground tagger to art-world darling was just about the farthest thing from a smooth ride imaginable. Los Angeles-based artist Choe lives his life as unrestrained as humanly possible, and while that's a truly unique way to find inspiration, it can make life somewhat difficult at times -- in addition to serving multiple jail sentences and battling addiction, Choe has also wrestled pygmies in the heart of the Congo and gone hunting for dinosaurs. Recorded by Choe's best friend Harry Kim over the course of seven years, this documentary offers an unguarded profile of an artist who lives his life as most folks only wish they could.

Llyn Foulkes One Man Band

Llyn Foulkes One Man Band (2014)

Starring:

During the seven years chronicled in the film, artist and musician Llyn Foulkes creates, destroys, and recreates a pair of large-scale, three-dimensional paintings, one that costs him his marriage, while trying to keep afloat in the fickle art market. With interviews from veterans of the 1960s Los Angeles art scene such as Dennis Hopper and George Herms, the film reconstructs Foulkes's uncompromising, up-and-down career as he was kicked out of the legendary Ferus Gallery and walked away from a successful career as an L.A. pop artist. Structured like one of Foulkes's constantly reworked paintings, the film tracks his artistic struggles, ending as he is at last rediscovered by the international art world at age 77. With music written and performed by Foulkes on a massive, fanciful, self-invented musical instrument he calls "The Machine," Llyn Foulkes One Man Band is an intimate portrait of an artist battling his own demons as well as the perceived demons of the art world.
