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.

Nike and SoleHeaven: graffiti art collaboration

Tomorrow is the opening
of "Kicks N Canvas" in London's trendy Eastend. If you are into sneakers and graffiti art then you're in for a treat, if a slightly commercial one. (My email invite says adidas Stan Smiths, but the website says Nike...confusing.)
"The idea for the event is to bring together two of SoleHeaven's most loved pursuits - Kicks & Art. We've locked down a scorching line-up of 21 artists primed and ready to paint. The concept of the show is to confront traditional graffiti writers and artists with a new canvas, and thats a pair of pristine all-white Nike kicks.
We are throwing down the sneaker gauntlet to see them transfer their styles from the metal shutters, concrete bridges and underpasses on to a pair of trainers. Every artist will be hand painting and customizing a pair of kicks and teaming it up with a 50x50cm piece."

A Goldie stenciled painting will be available on the night. Hopefully, there will be some nice paintings up for grabs. My Inkie and INSA canvases sit nicely with my U.S. art collection.
