Steve Powers aka ESPO continues to impress in the later stages of his career. ESPO has gone from a well-respected graffiti artist to a thoughtful conceptual artist. He keeps his ideas and execution simple but the results are often extraordinary. This commissioned piece for Kurt Vile’s new album in the pair’s hometown of Philly is a perfect example. Your eye is drawn to ESPO’s signature lettering but below he finds ways to transfer Vile’s lyrics into perfect visual images. Always nice to see a genuine creative collaboration that benefits both artists.
