END. and Krink partner for the first time in celebration of the New York City-based brand and its ties to graffiti and street culture, creating a bespoke four pack of the label’s famous ink markers.
What would eventually blossom into the Krink we know today began bubbling up in the graffiti scene of San Francisco and New York City throughout the 1990s, with Craig Costello — an artist then known as KR, renowned for his drippy-style graffiti tags — experimenting and fashioning products to create his own marks.
Throughout that period and the decades that followed, the Krink brand steadily grew from a DIY passion project to a tour de force in both the graffiti and wider artistic sphere, culminating in the globally renowned brand we see today.
END. and Krink come together to celebrate the cultural importance of the New York City-based label, creating a custom four pack of popular Krink favourites. The pens come in four different sizes, K-71, K-70, K-63 and K 51, with each one featuring alcohol-based, permanent Super Black ink. Both the pens and the packaging feature the collaborations bespoke graphic: END.’s name tagged over the top of the iconic silver Krink logo in the New York City-based label’s signature drippy style.
The END. x Krink Marker Set will launch via END. Launches on 24th of September.
