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.

Nick Walker: In Gods We Trust new show in London

Nick Walker, the graffiti artist turned stencilist, is one of my old skool homies who shares my love of hip hop. And he's opening his latest exhibition, "In Gods We Trust" (a pun on the wording on the mighty dollar bill,) in London this Wednesday.

Art Sensus Gallery in Victoria, central London is exhibiting Nick's solo work that focuses on two subjects guaranteed to kill any dinner party vibe...religion and politics!

Anyone who's seen Nick's work will know what to expect: some titillation, cheekiness and a peek into Nick's sometimes perverse mind. ;) For those who haven't check this video production of work painted in Paris' Quai De Valmy in the spring 2010.

The show opens to the public on Wednesday 13th of October and runs until 17th of November. The private view will be ram jam, so RSVP and get there early. Email your details to

At the show, Nick Walker will be releasing a limited print (when is it ever unlimited?!) of the 'Le Corancan' painting featured in the video above. Do you get it" Koran x Can Can? You can find out more info from Helium Foundation on + 44 (0)20 7404 7667

Love it or hate? You can see more of Nick's work here at Helium Foundation, the London-based, lady-run print house that represents the who's who of the urban art world. What does the media think of Le Coranan? I saw a little post on Superfuture.

paris: le corancan

"brit artist nick walker put up this intriguing, if not slightly controversial, wall painting in paris earlier this week. dubbed le corancan, it’s a visual amalgamation of the islamic veil and french 19th-century dance, the can can. the wall painting is a pre-taster of the i love america group show in which the artist participates, held next may at studio 55. wall painting location: quai de valmy [canal st.-martin]."
