Love Letter is a project by Stephen Powers aka Espo with the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, and is sponsored by the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage through the Philadelphia Exhibitions Initiative.
» In creating Love Letter, thinking about the medium of marking that made me the artist I am today, thinking about the amazing West Philadelphia that gave me the inspiration to do it, and finally the commuters that ride the train, I’m looking to make colors and words happen on these rooftops and walls in a way that people will take ownership of the work. So if the buffman comes back around, people will shout him down. »
Painted on the rooftops and walls of Market Street from 63rd to 45th by Overbrook native Stephen Powers aka Espo and the youth of West Philadelphia.
