Stephen "ESPO" Powers

Spanning both graffiti and studio art, Stephen Powers is a staple in contemporary art. As an editor of On the Go magazine in the 90s, and as an author of graffiti history book The Art of Getting Over, Powers is just as much a part of the street art movement as he is a historian of it. He eased his way into mass culture through designing for Nike and painting his love letter mural series that spanned cities across the U.S.
