VIDEO: NYorkers: Steve Powers a.k.a ESPO

If you’ve ever traversed the streets of Downtown Brooklyn New York, looked up and saw clever musings about love and life written on buildings in huge letters and marveled at them then you’re a fan of Stephen Powers a.k.a ESPO. Originally from Philly he’s a graff writer, author and fine artist whose work has graced the pages of Mass Appeal more than a few times. As part of their ongoing NYorkers series Moonshot Productions interviewed him and got some rare footage of ESPO and company in the process of doing their expansive Brooklyn art installation. Watch the video above and learn what motivates ESPO’s projects and how his art is designed to reflect the community.
