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.

Bristol-born, London-based graffiti artist, Inkie, has opened his first solo show in his home town. The Bank of Stokes Croft has a selection of his illustrative style graffiti canvases on show until Sunday and the show has been extended due to "popular demand" into the new year.

"Due to the outstanding public demand we will be restocking the 25 Years of Ink show with more graffiti based work as well as some classic Ink Nouveau ladies!

Please come and join us on Thursday 16th December from 6-9pm for free hot mulled cider and  mince pies the new show will run until Sunday the 9th January.
"I will also be launching 2 new prints. One based on my recent painting at Arnos Vale cemetery and the other a classic Inkie Wildstyle print..."

"The show is a look back at the 25-year career of Inkie, covering his graffiti work, his Ink Nouveau ladies (example below,) t-shirt graphics and selected old and new design and print works from the period 1985 to 2010." Bristol Culture

"Bristol is a beautiful Georgian city with a very creative outlook/attitude tucked away from the rest of UK and has a lot of good cider, weed and mushrooms. That helped.

"The styles used in graffiti are everywhere from street signs to plants to ancient temples. The key is to combine all of these mentally and freestyle your ideas out in your design." Inkie
