About this title

Synopsis:

WK has proved himself to be one of the truly original and innovative street artists in his ability to marry the movement of the street to the dynamism imbued in his work. “WK’s public art cannot stand still or keep quiet for the simple reason that the world around it is no more capable of playing dead either.” –Carlo McCormick.
WK Act 4 explores 25 years of WK’s work on the street, producing everything from small scale stencil work to huge murals, all beautifully complimenting the perpetual motion of urban life. “WK Interact’s iconic black and white street art – human figures engaged in some type of extreme motion or emotion, running, jumping, screaming, struggling to escape – has forever pierced our memory of the Lower East Side and SOHO streets.” Isabel Kirsch writes in the introduction, “the impermanent, multi-dimensional surfaces of the ever-hustling and bustling inner city are the ideal backdrop to bring his images to life.”
The book features an extensive collection of some of the artist’s most famous works including his 17-painting installation at the Colette Gallery in Paris, the iconic decorations of building facades in downtown Manhattan and Project Brave, a moving 9/11 memorial at the World Trade Centre. Complete with an in-depth introduction and biography with contributions from several contemporaries, the book presents a fascinating journey into the world of WK.
“WK is one of the true original artists to push the urban art form and inspire a generation to take it to the next level.”-Patrick McNeil.

About the Author:

WK (aka WK Interact) was born in 1969 in Caen, France. He currently lives and works in New York. His work is site specific and the imagery is chosen with a concern for encounters in an urban environment or “interactions” (as the artist indicates in his pseudonym). In 2010, audio of an interview with WK discussing his work along with a slideshow of his images was featured in a New York Times article about Jonathan LeVine Gallery. WK has shown in galleries internationally including Tokyo, London, Berlin and Mexico City. In 2005, Gestalten published his first monograph, WK Interact: Exterior-Interior Act 2. Drago published a his second book in 2009, 2.5 New York Street Life. In 2013, Jonathan LeVine Gallery presented a 25 year survey exhibition of WK’s work at a pop-up location in New York and published a catalog with essays by Carlo McCormick, Patrick McNeil of Faile and Marc and Sara Schiller of Wooster Collective.
