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.

You may not know Kevin Lyons...

But you know his work. After all, he's been design don at Urban Outfitters, Spike Jonze's Girl Skateboard Company, TOKION Magazine Nike and a bunch of other hip brands like Adidas, Stussy and Stussy Japan, Beams Japan, HUF. And he's taught at RISD and CalArts and Yale!

Interesting stuff, but I wasn't sure I was gonna go to his show at HVW8 until I read about his clothing companies. He runs a line for 2K and his own Natural Born which I love!

His philosophy built up over many years is priceless. "Just sharing. Warning. But not apologizing...Just carry the art in a bag on a plane and put it up in less than 24 hours..."

Here are a few pics of the scrawlings and artwork.

Corporate life Right now Kevin works for ultra-cool branding company, Anomaly, in New York which he calls a "pseudo ad agency". He commutes nearly 4-hours a day and during the bumpy train ride he draws and doodles. Amazing and prolific! I think I'd sleep ;)
