Steve (aka ESPO) has been on the graffiti scene since the late 80s in Philly. Having moved to NYC sometime back, his work has developed a sign painter aesthetic. He takes ques from carnival signs, classic advertising and hand painted media in general. Then, for his canvases, he combines them with everyday hood slang terms and references to love, violence and capitalism. He's among one of my favorites.
