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.

Secret Wars...London rocks the spot

I was surfing the net and boom! This pops up. In the UK is an art event that captures cool and manages to bring with it the talent and a structure that could make it an annual event or franchise (alright I went to business school, so sue me!?)

I looked at the Secret Wars MySpace page and spotted a familar face. Yes, mate...that's Inkie. Bristolian. B-Boy. Brilliant. But, he knows it ;-) He printed the Slave of New York sweatshirt I have (under his Flying Eye clothing label).

Secret Wars describes itself as "...Put simply, it is a war between artists. The ultimate question however, is who will reign supreme? The only weapon they carry is the Edding pen they hold in their hand.

"This is Secret Wars. There can only be one winner.... paint will spill!"

What is Secret Wars?
"Started up as a friendly battle between Monorex and Jon Burgerman’s Black Convoy, things have gone from strength to strength. With the crowd hungry for more we decided to drop a whole load more…

Roll up, Roll up! And bear witness to a spectacle like no other as design behemoths (Sickboy, Koa) take on young upstarts (Fybe, Alfamale, Kept, Gustav, Cpt. Buckio, RichT, Teck 1, Squid Inc and more.) in an art battle to the death. Armed only with an arsenal of pens, paint and stretched cloth these mighty crews will duel live at the forthcoming sensory spectacular we know as ‘Secret Wars’ at Juno Bar, Shoreditch."
