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.

Brits invade Culver City (aka Scion Installation gallery)

Tonight the urban artists of Britain came to Culver City courtesy of Scion, the hip marque of Toyota.

Jason, Britt and I were there to see the 'Special Relationship' show of 12 artists curated by Scrawl Collective's Rick Blackshaw (and long time associate of our mate, Nick Walker, aka Apish Angel, who's coming to LA for his own show starting February 2nd. Expect to read more here soon).

Do you like the paparazzi pic of Britt and me that I got from a party website? Hahaaa.

'Special Relationship' This is a poke at the US/UK relationship..."our government likes to think it has some influence over yours but they are the only ones who believe it. There is though another special relationship that has thrived since the post-war years and that's the cultural one. Music, TV, Film, Literature..."

Tonight's musical backdrop by The Gaslamp Killer was the perfect choice to pair with the ecletic mix of art on display: the rib cage guitar installations by Dave Walker, customized Dirty Harry screenprints by Ryca and, my favorite, paintings by Dead Hoxton Girls.
