The Art of Sign Painting with Steve Powers
"Known in his early days as graffiti icon ESPO, Steve Powers has been a charismatic figure in both New York’s art and graffiti world throughout the past 20 years. Seen all over the streets of Philadelphia, New York, and Brooklyn, his flat top and name have been synonymous throughout these street scenes since the mid-90s. However, after ESPO’s success for several years, Steve decided to step away from the shadow lands of graffiti and establish himself as a sign painter. In this episode of Art Talk we accompany Steve to explore his new project "Love Letter to Brooklyn" in the heart of downtown at the old Macy’s parking garage. We get a behind the scenes look into his life as ESPO, how his work has developed over the years, and his life as a dad."

Caux Collective Recommends: Grey Group
You may not have heard of the Grey Group before, but these are the guys behind the scenes that you really should know. They are a global advertising and marketing agency, with copious awards to their name, who have made many well known advertising campaigns happen (for international companies such as Procter & Gamble, Nokia and Volkswagen) and who also happened to be the guys responsible for these brilliantly designed, perfectly satirical, comic-style ‘safe sex’ posters for MTV, which I love.
