a love letter to you from stephen powers.
artist steve powers, along with the philadelphia mural arts project, has been working on text-based murals along the elevated train line to and from the city of philadelphia, as well as along some of its more run-down areas. the project is called a love letter to you, and it was a collaboration between powers and the community in which the murals are painted - including ideas and stories from the residents themselves.
i am impressed by the sentiment of the murals, along with the great effect that such bright bold colors have against the worn down textures of the buildings.
check out more examples of the murals here
thanks to amy bonner for the heads up on this great project.
