Space: Libya Montes

In the first issue of the StreetKonect Magazine, we published Mvgna under the segment space. We felt that it is appropriate to feature more spaces under our blog without waiting for the next issue of the magazine. It is good to see how creative or destructive individuals create or affect the space they are working in and how these spaces affect their works. From the past we published Mvgna and Junk/kdlat's previous studio.

Today we are featuring Libya Montes.

Introduction by Joko Sotto:

"Libya Montes just like Manny Pacquiao is a "contemporary renaissance" man. He is one of the foundations of the avan- garde group Bomba Press. I noticed him when he played for his band Fake Wig around 2009. He is multi lingual, he speaks the language of nature, on the cultural aspect, he speaks cebuano, english, tagalog and many other languages including the hypertext mark up language, c++. He wrote short stories and poetry with those languages including "the code is poetry" scene.  He publishes his zine under Bomba Press, the latest one is "Bakunawa Kingpin" in which artist Uzi Emperado designed the cover. He is currently collaborating with koloWn for another zine which is expected to be released later this year. He is an active diskoral advocate and remixes tracks dayang-dayang and aringkingking under Bomba Sound Machine and Pedofuck."

Libya Montes on his space:

"Efficiency is the key.  You know, for porn and programming. Plus, it has to be neear the window so that I can see what my crazy neighbors are up to."

Tie One

 Jonathan See Lim AKA Tie One (1979–1998), was a graffiti artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was well known in the graffiti community for his aggressive style of graffiti art and the large amount of work he produced. Lim was born in the Philippines to ethnic-Chinese parents. During his early childhood, his family moved to California. -pilipinas-streetplan Saint Patrick’s Day has always been difficult to celebrate because on this day eleven years ago, our friend and soldier Tie, Jonathan See Lim, was murdered in the Tenderloin of San Francisco on Turk and Taylor. A man named William Porter shot him in the back of his head while Tie was begining to climb a rooftop to pain. Of cource the SF police covered it up as a robbery and our 18 year old little buddies death went unvindicated. He was a major influence to us all and his memory will live on in our hearts. - saberone
