Tonight, WK Interact will be exhibiting a large body of work at Jonathan Levine gallery’s pop-up gallery location that housed How & Nosm’s recent showcase. This show, entitled WK 360, is an expansive mid-career survey of the first 25 years that WK has created in the world of art, both indoors & out. AM joined the French-born & New York-based artist earlier this week as he and the gallery worked feverishly to put together this impressive showcase of the wild and ingenious “interactive” art work that […]

On Friday night (March 8th), Jonathan LeVine Gallery will be welcoming in WK Interact for his second solo with the showspace at a temporary location (557 West 23rd Street). 360 is meant to be a mid-career survey of WK’s work, celebrating the last 25 years of the French-born, New York-based artist’s career. The exhibition will consist of a series of works on cardboard, paper and panels, large multi-paneled collages, as well as additional installations, memorabilia and photographs serve to document his early years and evolution as a […]
Last year WK Interact took to the streets of Paris to share his hardcore style with the folks in France “occupying” the streets. Then, he created a special spread for the inside of Wired Magazine. Now, he’s continuing the series of work with a special duo-colored screen print entitled Struggle with Jonathan LeVine Gallery. It’s signed & numbered by the artist and limited to an edition of 25. Get yours here. Discuss WK Interact here.
Last week we shared with you some hardcore works that WK Interact put up in Paris in conjunction with the “Occupy Movements” occurring around the globe. Now we can show you the “would have been” cover for this month’s Wired Magazine. Unfortunately, WK informed us that Wired change their minds on the cover, but the good news is that this artwork and more by the NY-based artist are still displayed inside a “Riot” spread in the magazine. So go out to your newsstand and cop a […]
Taking a closer look at this year’s Scope art fair, we zoom in on New York’s Jonathan LeVine Gallery. They brought some old and some new to show Miami where they’ve come from and some of the new talent that’s coming down the pipeline. We caught WK Interact and Olek presenting fresh works alongside newcomers to the gallery such as Jason DeCaires Taylor and Aakash Nihalani with their thought provoking installations/photography. Check it out after the jump.
Since we last caught up with WK Interact in September for the Project Brave (covered) in New York, we haven’t heard much from the street specialist. But recently, he took some time to update his outdoor pieces from a year ago in Paris with some work in a similar vein. Inspired by the NYC “Occupy” movement that has spread across the globe, the New York-based artist revisited areas such as Bastille Station to lay down some unique imagery in support – notice the riot gear such […]
Over the weekend, New Yorker’s received a new mural to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of 9/11, courtesy of WK Interact. Project Brave is a huge 328 foot wall piece located on Kent Avenue (between North 4th & North 5th Streets) that paid tribute to the firefighters and memorialized the tragedy through the kinetic imagery of the NY-based street artist and will be on display until October 11th. AM photographer Joe Russo was on scene to document the install with the full photoset after the jump. […]

Featuring his signature in-motion creations, the large 328 foot mural will feature iconic imagery from the tragic attack and will be on view from September 11 – October 11. Discuss WK Interact here.
It looks like Paris recently received a hefty dose of WK Interact and also may have gotten a glimpse at a different side of the NY-based artist. The bondage-inspired works were considerably smaller than the huge mural WK just completed in Mexico (covered), but nevertheless, still made a strong impact on the City of Lights.

Following up on our initial coverage last week of the group exhibition Urban Alchemists (teased), here’s a more extensive preview of the work that Jonathan LeVine Gallery will have to share for Art Basel Week.
