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.

Kofie - Week #1 of "Edifice Cache" @ MoronoKiang Gallery, Los Angeles

Los Angeles based artist, Kofie, was the inaugural artist in MoronoKiang Gallery's group show "Edifice Cache," curated by Shervin Shahbazi.

I'm late with this as the show opened on January 22, but it runs until February 19, 2011. "Edifice Cache" is described as an 'evolving installation' it features four other artists (Mike Russek, John Carr, Favianna Rodriguez and Yuri Shimojo.)

"The concept of 'Edifice Cache' is based on the idea of Exquisite Corpse whereby a work of art is created through the collaboration of a group of artists who will add their work to components of - in this case - a single installation in sequence.

Mike Russek, an L.A. based artist and designer will provide the basis in the form of an evolving installation. The components of this installation will be revealed to the artists to create their part." MoronoKiang Gallery

MoronoKiang Gallery has its own YouTube channel to share the creation of the installation, aka the Edifice, and the processes as the memory component, aka the Cache, of the exhibit.

Here is the first week with Kofie. 4.00 minutes into this stop-motion video Kofie appears and installs his work and then we see him at work in his studio finishing his paintings. Very cool.

MoronoKiang Gallery is located at 218 West 3rd Street, Los Angeles, CA 90013.
Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 12-6 pm.
