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.

The amazing disappearing Banksy mural!

And for my next trick! Watch you see you don't!

Not only are masterpieces going missing in Paris it seems it's catching over here in Los Angeles too! Ok, a stencil isn't quite a Pablo Picasso, but you get my gist!

Sad loss A Banksy mural in my 'hood was covered up for a week as the building was for sale and when it was revealed it was missing. Vamoosh! I wonder if an entrepreneur bought the building, raped it of the Banksy and then put it back on the market. I like to dream up these wild ideas as I drive around town!

The creation of the mural was captured in Banksy's documentary film, "Exit Through The Gift Shop." See below and fast forward to 4 minutes, 40 seconds to see the infamous rat character being made into a stencil.
