Steve Powers’ Icy ‘Love Letter’


As part of his ongoing “Love Letters” project with the City of Philadelphia’s Mural Arts Program, artist Steve Powers unveiled some of the latest legal walls he painted. The piece above had a nice twist, specifically paying homage to an old school graffiti writer who bombed the same spot about three decades ago. Powers posted the following description of the work:

Nice Dream, inspired by CLYDE IWS, who painted his name in this exact location almost 30 years ago. I borrowed his color scheme and his dripping letter style and brought it into my world of  the gothic/gotham letter sign style. This was an early version, we changed ”about you” to “about us”.

See the rest of the walls done so far on the official website documenting the project.
