Profile: WK

One of the real joys of walking around downtown
Manhattan is that as you explore the Lower East Side and Soho, you continuously
come across wonderful examples of the work of the French born artist, WK.  The
first time we saw WK’s murals on Lafayette and Prince we stood there in a daze,
amazed at how stiking the imagery was.  Now each time we venture into the LES we
stop by WK’s terrific gallery/shop called Studio 101. Inverably WK is there and
always willing to talk about his art and his projects.  If you’re not yet
familiar with WK’s work, be sure to check out his website at href="http://www.wkinteract.com">www.wkinteract.com.
