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.

Art Is Capitali$m

eBay has a lot to answer for! Look at this, an opening eBay bid of $0.99 for a program that was given away free at the Antony Micallef show was hyped up into a crazy frenzy to $2,650!?

d***t( 1338) US $25.00
c***_( 675) US $2.00
Starting Price US $0.99

I think that the buyer/s were confused as to what they were actually buying. The item wasn't misrepresented so I'm not sure whether there is any claim for the winning bidders to fall back on. Once they pay, that's it! Legally binding deal. Eek!

"I received a couple of questions about the details of the catalog. It's a glossy thick stock catalog that has every piece shown in Los Angeles. This includes a thumbnail and $ amount for each piece. The cover is a Peacekeeper image only and can easily be framed. Thanks"

My eBay nightmare...fakes and mis-selling! (or in this case mis-buying). Ok, the seller's use of the word 'catalog' is a bit was really just a 4-page program...and actually, his message on his posting was misleading...there isn't a every piece in the show including a's just a thumbnail. Man, $2,650! Yikes!

Oh, watch out for my eBay items....yep, that's my photo from my listing. Great value!
