Stevio...LA LA Lovin' It?

I'm British-born Chinese from Bristol, UK. I’m LA-based. I’m a hip hop aficionado. After 15 years in London I moved to LA to pursue a new career and outlook on life.

Back in the 80s I was a DJ. In the 90s I contributed to the world's first street style exhibition at London's Victoria & Albert Museum. In 2011, I had my first interviews published. Today, I’m keeping busy with music, art, photos and writing.

Banksy brings it to LA

You gotta love Banksy. Bristolians in LA love Banksy. The Beeb even came over to report on his show that happened downtown on Hunter St. off of Sante Fe.

The show commenting on disproportionate wealth, dysfunctional economic policies and false idols was pretty ram-jam on Saturday afternoon when I headed down there - ironically I'd just dropped off my Gucci loafers in Beverly Hills for re-heeling! But I get the message...

Here are my videos and photos for y'all...

As it happens, I met Banksy at the video game exhibition at the Barbican a couple of years ago when Steve was managing him and before he put his booklets and prints together. I bought a couple of sets of the booklets from Rough Trade and was thinking about how many of his art booklets he's sold? Let's say 250,000. At 5 quid each. Let's say he gets 2.50 quid = 625,000 quid or $1.2m?! Who needs a publishing deal? DIY.
