Stephen "ESPO" Powers on the cover of Juxtapoz.
The Philadelphia/New York artist extraordinaire ESPO is donning the cover of Juxtapoz this month. Growing up ESPO was similar to a super hero for me, his graffitti was so next level. From his tags to his pieces to his blockbusters, everything was completely original and inspiring.
I also, remember going into Tower Books and reading,and admiring "The Art of Getting Over". I never had enough money to buy it, so I had to take it all in while sitting on the bench. Years later, I was finally able to buy and copy and I still take it off my book shelf, and flip through to this day. ESPO is a complete graff legend.
