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.

Graffiti by Google Maps (Cache, Los Angeles)

Cache graffiti, Melrose Ave/Heliotrope (credit: Google Maps)

As I was looking for an address online, I spotted that Google Maps had immortalized a mural by Cache outside 20 Bicycles, a store in this local neighborhood close to the I-101 S freeway entrance.

I've created "mash-ups" of my Bristol graffiti photos on Flickr and mapped them into a walking tour of part of the city. Imagine what you could do with Google Maps?!

With phone camera pictures (usually) automatically linked to GPS coordinates, there is a global library of pictures from graffiti art events and mural walls. They just need a place to single place to congregate and be published.

That would be an awesome project. I don't use the "awesome" phrase lightly... :)
