Unlike most gallery darlings, Koh eschews all-black, super-serious nihilism in favor of bright colors and cutesy affectations (when writing, he uses words like “coolio” and “greato”).

I’m a little upset that I missed his performance at PS1 last Sunday (if only I found out about it before I got a ticket to see Cremaster at the same time…).
