Philadelphia native, Steve (ESPO) Powers arrived in New York in the early 90 s, immersing himself in the city s vibrant Graffiti scene and quickly developing a unique, conceptually driven style all his own. By the end of the decade he started his own studio practice and launched a distinguished career both as a fine artist and a commercial illustrator. With the publication of Steve Powers Is A Studio Gangster, Powers records 5 years of paintings that distill the complete range of human emotion into readily recalled and related memes. These visual archetypes are aptly described by Powers as a synthesis of word and image to create a new emotional revelation . This book is published on the occasion of his Fall 2007 exhibition at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art entitled. Powers is a 2008 Fulbright scholar and has shown at Deitch Projects, the 49th Bienalle, the Luggage Store and the Liverpool Biannual in 2004

I've seen Steve Powers work in highbrow galleries and at Coney Island, in books and on a raincoat. I think I saw some in a deli once. What can I say? He brings the cosmic Zen koan to the pawnshop, the Sermon on the Mount to the gas station and the Ten Commandments with better lettering. This is really beautiful stuff. --David Byrne
