The mysterious WK Interact as been caught in the ADDICT Galerie compound… Hood, climbing suit, kit bag…

According to the witnesses, a mysterious black-clad character, would have intrude the premises subtly.
The thirty- years old willowy man has neither vandalized nor stolen anything.
However, he has attacked the cymas and without hesitation, rearranged the setting. Black on white, some genuine human twisters leave their tremendous mark on the walls. Those moving characters seem to be fugitive, and take us in their dynamic. Armed while climbing and surrounded by targets and other impacts, they colonize the gallery and seem to be in the heart of some criminal acts… Moreover, these graphic pieces depict the details of a wild and painting chase that would have been happening in the very premises of the gallery.

All of this is by WK Interact.
Who is hiding behind these initials?
WK
could be the meaning for “Double view” or “Double Kind”.
Double view
, double nature or more logically “double impact”.
This pseudonym leads us on the track of a dangerous double agent whose aim is unmistakably to make the walls of the city alive illegally. Wanted all over the world for a couple of facts he has been accumulating by the past 15 years, WK Interact is actually a French man exile in the lower New York from the 90’s, when he was about twenty-years old and couldn’t say a world in English. New York is the place of his first marks as a mad street artist: he paints several housing estates in Soho; at that time, this practice was almost nonexistent in the USA. We also know that WK has worked for the Cinema. Thanks to this, he has a perfect command of the storyboard and of the representation of movement generally speaking.
Wherever Paris, New York, London or Berlin… Everywhere on the first ground, WK’s characters assimilate the city to their backdrop within their mad run.
The city and the distance of its anonymity have not the same impact anymore.

As for the term ”Interact”, it should mean that sometimes, our fellow collaborates with other entities. As he doesn’t hesitate hiding or playing the chameleon, his name has been associated to fashion and street wear: WK Interact has customized clothes, sneakers or even a series of skateboards with the heard of several gangs from New York.

He just has set his characters distorted with movement at ADDICT Galerie that WK Interact is already taking flight. The Secret Services are now hot oh his heels.
Between other incriminating evidences, they have found at ADDICT Galerie his equipment and accessories in several suitcases: hood, rope, climbing shoes, oxygen spray, torch, leather gloves … that have allowed him to intrude the place. Many digital prints have been taken on the scene. The chase all over the world is quickening…
