The 5th youngest in a family of 6, Stephen Powers was born with a healthy appetite for attention. Acting up in class never quite satisfied, and learning to ride a unicycle was too hard, so he gorged himself on graffiti. Once filled, he attended the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, and began to push his work in the medium towards a continuous dialogue with the masses, first with painting, then publishing On the Go magazine. He lives and paints in New York City. The Art of Getting Over: Graffiti at the Millennium was his first book, although not the first time he'd been booked.
