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, multidimensional surfaces of the everhustling 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 17painting 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 indepth 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.
