Upper Playground Brings David Choe’s Munko Whale To Life

If you haven’t heard of David Choe, you’ve probably heard of his show or his Facebook funds. The multi-disciplined artist, muralist, and illustrator is now teaming up with Upper Playground to release his Munko Whale as a plush toy. Bringing Choe’s illustration turned signature to life, Upper Playground paired with the Good Smile Company to produce and release the plush joints.

“The Munko whale first appeared in the Los Angeles graffiti scene as a David Choe signature, randomly popping up on pavements, concrete walls, over passes and freeways with quotes and food for thought.”

You can head over to the Upper Playground Shop to grab one of your own. Choe has even added a little note for shoppers who have questions about the Munko Whale.

“Munko has no arms or legs, but don’t take pity and cry for her. He is here, she is there, he is everywhere all at once. She is him and he is her, she is chubby little baby and 2 billion year old wise wizard. He can transform and shapeshift into your wildest wet dream or your worst nightmare. She is selfish and cares nothing about you. Fuck your stupid problems, fuck your feelings, but also loves you and cares about you and puts more importance on you, more than anyone. In your life, I love you, I love you, I love you. The black hole in her head eats all the pain and darkness in the world. He believes all her strength knowledge and luck comes from his only tooth, but in reality it’s the sole survivor of her over active sweet tooth. Munko is simple in form and mind and shape, yet so complex living on many levels and realities. Not so simple that he can’t feel multiple emotions and contradicting feelings and opinions all at once. She is telepathic and can read your deepest darkest thoughts, you cannot hide or lie to munko, when you are with munko you just be, and you will finally be at peace with your fucking self. ” —David Choe
