Artist Turns a $60K Mural Painting at Facebook HQ into $200M

In 2005, artist David Choe was commissioned by Sean Parker to paint murals at Facebook's first office for $60,000. Despite his initial skepticism towards the company, Choe accepted a payment in stock (0.25%) instead of cash. Upon Facebook's IPO in 2012, Choe's shares were sold for [$200 million](https://www.unilad.com/news/money/david-choe-mural-facebook-headquarters-payment-732013-20231212).
