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.

Pics from press day @ MOCA #ArtInTheStreets

I just got back from the members' opening of "Art in the Streets." But, earlier this week I got an invite to the "Art in the streets" press day which I wanted to share. That in itself wasn't that interesting, after all we've been reading snippits of the press release and seeing the press office approved images for a few weeks now.

Artists in attendance The reason for coming down was to see all the artists in attendance. I spent a few hours meeting artists, their families, other journalists and fans like myself. The artist group shot at the end of the afternoon captures the excitement of this exhibition. It was orchestrated by MOCA and Aaron Rose, but Martha Cooper got impatient and she broke rank to get a more energetic photo of her own!

Here are a selection of images of the artists and crew.

And some other images from the exhibition in all its glory. The "Donut Time" installation by Steve Powers, Reas and Barry McGee is a crazy, multi-level mini world that drags you back in time to the 80s.
