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.

Seen tours the Bronx with Ricky Powell

The inimitable Ricky Powell brings us his own flavour of interview chatting to the legendary Seen thanks to Upper Playground. I've been saving this post for the summer ;)

Watch it for some history and how the Bronx gangs influenced Seen as a youth. See the inside of Seen's studio and his sketches for pieces and installations that are 'work-n-progress.' Here him talk about his 3D series that he's making in fibreglass!

"NY prankster and photographer, Ricky Powell, interviews graffiti legend Seen about growing up in the Bronx, monster trucks, urban environments, and the pitfalls of emerging technology. Ricky also gets an inside look at a then in-progress series of sculptures in the massive Seen Studios, reflecting the increasingly tactile direction his work was taking. Watch the interview from "Dithers," available for the first time to the public for free, on Walrus TV."
