In this great video via Philadelphia’s Megawords Magazine, Steve Powers, the creator of the city-wide mural project A Love Letter For You and one of the speakers at our upcoming PSFK Conference in New York this Friday, discusses his relationship and history with the West Philly community.

Megawords explains:

“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. Twenty-five 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.”
