Last month we did a feature on ESPO (Steve Power's) Philly epic multi-mural project A Love Letter For You. Check the photos.
Was getting over a sinus infection, but that's no reason to not stop for a beer.

Dedication to making the world a better place may seem overzealous for an artist but ESPO is the exception to the rule. He has been an influential contributor to bettering the lives of teenagers from troubled housing projects by teaching art in Ireland, fighting for human rights in Guantanamo Bay, and spreading the love with his most recent Love Letter Street Mural Exhibit. ESPO, meaning Exterior Surface Painting Outreach, is revered for his graffiti, signage on the street as well as huge art installations in galleries such as Dietch Projects, Collette and Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Aside from his successful career as a professional gallery artist, he is also a Fullbright scholar, a participant in the 49th Venice Biennale, and author of two artist books.
300 tires were collected all around San Francisco

ESPO came to SF with no work since he's been so busy... He created these in the week he was here.
Having a gallery (tiny) ourselves, I can feel White Walls pain when it comes to having to paint over all of this... Looks great though.
Looks like they just had fun with the space... drawing, taping and pinning things to the wall.

Unfinished work or displaying the process?... or both?
Seemed like a good drawing to end on.
A little video for a live taste.
