Steve Powers considers himself a “visual blues artist, a painting troubadour playing his trade worldwide.” Here in Baltimore, MD, most recently in NYC. He began his career in graffiti, working under the tag ESPO, and soon translated his urban epigraphs into large-scale commissions like “Love Letter to Baltimore,” supported by the thriving Baltimore Mural Program (he’s penned other love letters to other cities spanning the country). This possibility-rich epiphany emblazons the Fitch Company Building on Russell Street. “Forever Together” clad the fronts of 36 houses slated for demolition in East Baltimore. As part of his B’more amore, Powers set up an ICY Signs outpost, offering to create free signs for locals businesses. I see insight. And a chance to fete John!
