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.

Levi's presents: OUTSIDE IN: The Story of Art in the Streets #ArtInTheStreets

Tonight is the premiere of Alex Stapleton's film, "Outside In: The Story of Art in the Streets," at The Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. As it says on the can, this Levi's-funded film gets behind the curtain and shows us the making of "Art in the Streets," the first major graffiti and street art exhibition supported by a museum. 

RSVPs for the film have closed, but a little birdy tells me the film will be showing at your favorite urban film festival soon. And you can still see the show at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, currently in its second month

Danielle Hinde and Alex Stapleton

If you want exclusive and unique footage and interviews of the artists featured in Art in the Streets look no further than this film. "The film features exclusive interviews with show artists sharing their artistic process, pitfalls with the law and poetic impermanence of their craft." 

If you've ever wanted to know who the artists behind the art are, here's your chance: Martha Cooper, Lee Quiñones, Fab 5 Freddy, Shepard Fairey, Banksy, Mode2, EINE, Risk, Revok, Mr. Cartoon, ESPO, Henry Chalfant, Gusmano Cesaretti, Chaz Bojorquez, C.R. Stecyk III, Futura, Retna, Ed Templeton, Swoon, Neck Face, Geoff McFetridge, Aaron Rose, Jeffrey Deitch, Barry McGee, Os Gemeos, Kenny Scharf, Spike Jonze

The Levi's Film Workshop will host a Q&A with director Alex Stapleton and an after-party with a DJ set by artist Shepard Fairey. But remember, leave your fat caps and markers at home! ;)
