Steve Powers (aka Espo of graffiti fame), proves that home really is where the heart is, when he unveiled his ambitious mural project “A Love Letter For You” to his native city of Philadelphia this past Fall. Through countless hours of community outreach, meetings, and social networking, Powers has brought together hundreds of West Philly residents to shape this project with through their artistic skills, insights on love, and thoughts on what their neighborhood means to them. The end result is a series of beautiful & inspiring murals spanning close to 50 walls, rooftops, and billboards along the Market Street El. The narrative unfolds in the style of old Burma Shave ads as riders travel between 46th and 63rd Streets.
