Bringing It All Back Home

This week, the often-prescient Supertouch (“a blog-type thing” from Jamie O’Shea, former editor-in-chief of the underground art magazine Juxtapoz) posted the latest from downtown street artist WK Interact. Downtown types will recognize WK’s work instantly — life-size black-and-white figures with blurred, agonized mugs — but his newest series goes where few contemporary street artists tend to go, at least locally. WK’s soldiers, fourteen of which are up in various Manhattan and Brooklyn locales, writhe in pain and bear no ambiguity in message. The Splasher seems to have taken early retirement, but just in case, keep your eyes peeled while it lasts. —Rachel Wolff
