Chor Boogie (a.k.a. Joaquin Lamar Hailey) is an internationally renowned master of spray paint, having pioneered new techniques and his unique style in this modern medium of fine art. His visionary murals and art exhibitions have appeared throughout the world: Dubai, Brazil, Mexico, France, Germany, Australia, and in China for the 2008 Olympic games.

He was recently honored by Societe Perrier as being number three among the the Top Ten U.S. Street Artists of 2014. He approaches his use of color as a form of therapy and visual medicine, and has been dubbed “the color shaman” by comrades and fans.
