Steve Powers: YOUR Everafter IS ALL IM AFTER

February 12, 2010 Art, Contemporary No Comments

Picked up this 6-color screen print from Pictures on Walls.
Released to celebrate Steve Powers’ latest, most-awesome exhibition in Philly, A Love Letter For You.

About the exhibition – Copy + Paste:

In 1984 Steve Powers started climbing rooftops in his neighborhood and painting his alias ESPO as a dues paying member of the ICY graffiti club. 25 years later he returned home to Philadelphia in the summer of 2009 to write a love letter across the same rooftops facing the Market-Frankford line. The letter, meant for one, with meaning for all, encompasses 50 walls on a 20 block stretch of market street. Drawing input, inspiration, and work from the community Powers created a letter to and from west Philly. This unprecedented public art project was a collaboration of Powers, The Mural Arts Program, and the Pew Center for Arts and Heritage. It required 1200 cans of spray paint, 800 gallons of bucket paint, and the skilled hands of 20 of the finest spray painters in America, who Powers put into the legendary ICY club.

Might remember that this time last year, he dropped a similarly-themed print for his fans.
