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.

Iz The Wiz...R.I.P

Next week I'm heading to New York for the annual graffiti Hall of Fame event. Think of the legends of graff with hours to paint their murals, rather than snatched minutes at the train yard!

One legend will be missing this year. Iz The Wiz died today, he was only 49 years old! R.I.P.

Who is Iz the Wiz? Ask Lee Quinones who honored this graffiti legend last night in NYC at the Subway Art 25th Anniversary edition book signing. Check it out this tribute on video. Thanks to Rachel Cepeda sharing it.

Trivia Who knew Iz played a transit cop in Charlie Ahearn's "Wild Style."
