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.

Buffmonster cashs in...

I went to Gallery 1988 on Melrose to see the opening of the Buffmonster show. I'm still thinking the work is too derivative of other stuff: a lot of Japanese, a splash of phallic symbolism, a bit of vintage recycling and a can of pink paint. But it has caught people's imagination because it's simple, cute but with an underlying grubby message which some people think is smart.

I didn't buy the $40 poster print and get Buff to sign it for my wall. I may have been tempted to stick it on eBay! And that's not what art is about, right?!
