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.

Scion Installion #5 - VIPs

Jason and I went along to the Scion Installation #5 closing show in Culver City. The self-portrait artworks didn't inspire me so much, but it was good to see art from new faces to me (including Mark Mothersbaugh from Devo.)

My surprise was to see Jamel Shabazz in the house with his film producer/director. I first saw him in London at the Dazed and Confused Gallery in Old Street which was run by Mr. Kate Moss (at the time), the photographer Rankin.

Even after publishing three books Jamel is still super modest and appreciative and even went as far as giving me one of his prints which didn't quite meet his quality control so won't be seeing the light of day! Sweet. One of a kind!

"Rankin's ambitious exhibition and first ever UK retrospective commenced on the 31st of July 2009 and ran for 7 weeks. Set in the unique environment of the Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, the museum-scale exhibition covered 22,000 square foot, and showcased over 600 diverse images taken from his archives."
