About WK


WK Interact was born in 1969 in Caen, France. He currently lives and works in New York. Starting at a young age, WK became fascinated by the human body in motion; an infatuation strongly reflected in his work, which often capture figures frozen in a flight of movement. The artist”s technique of twisting an original drawing or photograph while it”s being photocopied results in the monochromatic palette and streamlined moment-in-time appearance of his finished work.

WK site-determines his work 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 in the fast-paced city. By the end of the decade, his unique street art aesthetic was being sought after by galleries around the world.
