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.

Liverpool and the Amazingly creative Brits!

The BBC reported that Liverpool was voted 'Cultural City of Europe'. So, what keeps Britain on the map? Well, I found this about Liverpool (the home of The Beatles, the Tate Liverpool art gallery, and The Liverbirds) - it's displaying this wonderful piece of contemporary installation art by Turner prize-winner, Richard Wilson. Called 'Turning The Place Over' (I think it's a cheeky reference to a Scouser's reputation for petty crime and buglaries).

See the video below - Wilson has cut a circle out of a building wall and rotated it 360º. The engineer who managed the project said that all it took was some O' Level geometry to work out what to do?! The building featured is the old Yates's Wine Lodge which will be demolished in 18 months, although the project cost nearly GBP450,000.

Look up Wilson and know that, like his earlier work (20:50 oil installation), the turning building needs to be seen to be truly experienced. (20:50 can be seen at the Saatchi Gallery in London).
