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.”

This came from a street kid earlier who thanked me before he got off the jeep because I gave him some Pringles. Damn, the simplicity and sincerity of what he has said really made my day because I seldom get a reply like that whenever I give something to street kids…
I felt really good that time and the feeling’s indescribable.
Rudimental - “Not Giving In” ft. John Newman & Alex Clare
East London quartet Rudimental have premiered their video for forthcoming single ‘Not Giving In’ which will be released on November 18 via Asylum Records and follows the ground-breaking, multiple award-nominated video ‘Feel The Love’.
Directed by photographer Josh Cole, the ‘Not Giving In’ video mirrors the extraordinary true life-story of Josh’s close friend and 3-times World Champion B-Boy, Mouse. Cleverly narrating two parallel stories - that of the young Mouse (played by B-Boy Allen) and that of an older brother (played by Tugo) - Mouse discovers the dance sub-culture of Manila, while his brother follows a less fortunate path.
The video was shot entirely on location in Manila; all the actors are regular local residents. Rudimental provide the perfect backdrop to this cinematic visual that alternates between both brothers’ lives on the streets. The uplifting record, a sound clash of live instruments, beats and soulful voices, conveys a spirit of hope with the soaring vocals of two heavyweights, John Newman and Alex Clare.
In real life, Mouse’s mother left the Philippines for the UK in a bid for a better life when he was just 8. He soon found himself on the streets, where he first discovered and got involved in dance. His mother returned to Manila when he was 16 years old and broought him back to her new home of Birmingham. Mouse quickly became involved in the UK B-Boy scene and by the age of 18 he was winning competitions. By age 26 he had risen to World Champion, which he then won again twice: once in Singapore and once in San Paulo.
Ang lungkot naman. Birthday ng kabarkada ko tapos saktong nadedo din ang erpats niya. Ilang beses na din kasing agaw-buhay si Tito kaya medyo naihanda ko na din ang sarili ko sa mga posibleng mangyari…
Nakakagaan lang din ng loob dahil hindi ko mailarawan sa utak ko na tipong naglulumpasay na sa sahig ‘yung kabarkada ko dahil deds na ang erpats niya. Palangiti at palatawa kasi ‘yung kumag na ‘yun kaya alam kong magiging ayos lang sila.
Tang inang yosi talaga ‘yan.
