First & Fifteenth – ESPO
This isn’t anything new, other than that its new to me, Espo fans can have a closer look at the works of Steve Powers here, and even buy prints online at First and Fifteenth. After the closing earlier this year of his Coney Island Studio space, this is a great way to get a hold of his work.
Some more info about Powers : Steve Powers was born and raised in Philadelphia. In 1994 he moved to New York City, published On the Go Magazine, and wrote enough graffiti to get a six-count felony indictment courtesy of the People of New York. After retaining the services of the excellent Ron Kuby, he accepted a plea deal and served 5 days
community service. Powers started his studio practice in 1998. Since then, he has shown at Deitch Projects, the 49th Venice Bienalle, the Luggage Store, and the Liverpool Biannual. In 2004 he worked with Creative Time on the Dreamland Artist Club in Coney Island. Go see him at the Dreamland Artist Clubhouse at 1206 Surf through Labor Day. Thanks to Deitch for the bio.
