Facebook IPO Makes Artist A Millionaire

By: Shawn Hess - February 6, 2012

About six years ago, a young graffiti artist named David Choe traded his services for a couple shares of Facebook stock. Now that Facebook has announced they are going public, he finds the stocks are worth millions. Who would have thought?

I guess it’s not all just luck for Choe though. He has painted for some other well-knowns including the co-founder of Napster and President Obama. Supposedly his Obama portrait hangs in the White House.

Good trade Choe. I hope the money treats you well.
