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.

In 2003, I went to Hyde Park, London to see Murakami's show at the Serpentine. Tomorrow I swap beautiful Royal parks for downtown LA to see pretty much the same show it seems from what I read in LA Weekly today...

I wouldn't go as far as saying what the UK's Guardian newspaper did, criticising Murakami for a lack of art:"There's no sign of any internal critique, just a lot of very high-class production values ... not much art here, either only a feeble sort of entertainment."

But I will say this...I don't want to see DOB, the big Eyes, or the manga-esque statues with orbits of cum. No, I want to see the new stuff with "traditional Japanese materials and motifs; the updated twists on Buddha statues, scrollwork, calligraphy, screen painting and a 300-year-old dye technique called yuzenzome."

But I quite like those mushrooms...sorry Brittany ;-)
