WK INTERACT

WK/MULTIMEDIA
July 15th – August 5th 2017

WK Interact was born in France but has lived and worked in New York City for the past 25 years. His unmistakable imagery features subjects captured in motion while surrounded and interacting with a perceived urban environment. Using black and white imagery WK creates stark visual moments for his characters to exist within. Many times a sense of urgency is conveyed with a streak of black lines flowing from a body as subjects appear to streak across the painting. Powerful facial expressions and bodies draped in unusual equipment forces you to consider something apocalyptic may be unfolding before your eyes. Areas of white space create a safe haven for both the subject and the viewer to contemplate the chaos taking place within inches.

“WK/Multimedia” is like a storyboard for the past 20 years of work WK has done in the streets around the world. Each original painting has all the graphic elements his work is known for and to top it off – We are offering a capsule collection featuring a limited edition print, skateboard deck and t-shirt.

WK (aka WK Interact) was born in 1969 in Caen, France. He has lived and worked in New York since the early 1990s. WK is interested with the human body in motion, his paintings of figures frozen in a flight of movement reflects this infatuation. The artist’s unique process involves a technique of twisting an original drawing or photograph while it’s being photocopied, resulting in the monochromatic palette and streamlined moment-in-time appearance of his finished work. WK site-determines his placements by finding an appropriate location first, then his imagery is chosen specifically with a concern for encounters in an urban environment or “interactions” (as the artist indicates in his pseudonym). In the late 1990s his images began appearing on building facades in downtown Manhattan, complimenting the constant stir of bodies and the perpetual motion of contemporary urban life in the fast-paced city.
