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.

Futura Very Special cognac

France's Hennessy, the world-leading cognac house, has extended its artist collaboration series with graffiti great, Futura 2000, who I interviewed last year.

Today, to celebrate the release of the limited-edition Futura x Hennessy V.S. bottle, Futura came to Los Angeles's Melrose Avenue. The venue for the "bottle-signing" was a high-end liquor store, not the Melrose Avenue graffiti alleys.

"Futura and Hennessy share a passion about the meeting of art and function. Hennessey has teamed up with the legendary Futura 2000 to collaborate on a very limited run of Very Special Cognac utilizing his signature atoms and abstractions. 
To create his limited edition bottle, Futura drew inspiration from Cognac's warm color palette, incorporating abstractions of his signature atomic motif and adapting his eye-catching use of line and shape to a new experience.Hennessy
