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.

Ma'claim murals in West LA

As a follow up post to my visit to Motana paint store in Echo Park I drove over to West LA to catch more Ma'claim work since I couldn't make the live painting and conversation at Goethe-Institut. You can  read more about the people involved and the on-going German-Cali cultural exchange at the Drowning blog.

To be honest taking pics of Ma'claim's work was poor consellation prize to the event, but better than nothing ;)

"The MA’Claim crew began back in 1999 when Akut, Case, and Rusk starting collaborating together. During their initial years together the trio focused mainly on Weimar, Germany. It was Rusk who first connected with Tasso and from there things took off quickly. Each of the four artists already had amazingly strong photorealistic spray skills on their own and together they complemented each other just perfectly and became a force to be reckoned with. It was Tasso who dubbed the crew MA’Claim in January of 2001." Juxtapoz Magazine
