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.

Fraudulent artists...MBW Mr Brainwash

There was a show in LA that I was going to see, but it kinda made me puke! Mr Brainwash has created an art franchise for the masses. His ideas are instantly likeable, yet they don't say anything. But what's worse than some screen-printing, stencil artist is that he can leap from nothingness to having the cover of LA Weekly.

It's the beginning of the end It's an amazing demo of hype, public relations and money. It stinks as art!

Am I jealous? May be, but I hate Mr Brainwash. F*#k his quotes from Banksy and Obey. Come on people...he's got you on his dick! Look at the images above. Such an obvious idea that these are from two different artists. Which one is "original"? Which one is Mr Brainwash?

The one on the left is from Rene Gagnon, a contemporary artist of merit with lots of interesting work and shows around town. The one on the right is from fraudster Mr Brainwash. Bollox to him. For more balanced opinions may be go to Known Gallery's blog.
