Visiting a friend in Philadelphia earlier this year, my eyes were given a present while traveling west on the Market-Frankford line. Sitting upon the urban landscape like a tiara was the work of Stephan ‘ESPO’ Powers. Growing up heavily influenced by the graffiti culture around me, ESPO’s work has always been an inspiration. A Love Letter For You in Philadelphia may be old news to some, but for me, it was like falling in love with ESPO all over again.
