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.

Kaws comes to town...

My mate JC hit me up to the Kaws show that opens tonight at Honor Fraser in Los Angeles. But someone forgot to send me an invite to Royal-T's pre-opening event last night...pah!?

KAWS - "The Long Way Home"
Honor Fraser gallery
February 21, 2009 — April 04, 2009
Opening Reception February 21, 2009 6:00 — 8:00 PM

Now, I'm not sure when I first saw Kaws' work, but it's memorable in a Hello Kitty kinda way. It even looks Japanese in style. Those "X" eyes, skull head and Mickey Mouse hands are all so familiar.

If you don't get to see the show try visiting your local Stussy store since it commissioned his mural work for its store walls. The last time I thought about Kaws was when I was chasing after the limited-edition i-D magazine issue that he illustrated (but, I got bored and eventually gave up. ;) )
