Krink announces WHQ, a book of photographs by Craig Costello produced with the generous support of agnès b. WHQ features portraits of over 50 artists and friends who visited the Krink studio, affectionately referred to as “The WHQ.” It includes a foreword by Stephen Powers. WHQ is a glimpse into a culture of creatives, showcasing their style and personality. Each photograph was made in front of the studio’s door, which became the established set. The door served not only as a static backdrop, but also a colorful, collaborative canvas. Curated by Costello, the door gradually collected the marks left by friends invited to write and draw using Krink markers. The door, now a completed work, will be installed and on view at the agnès b. Galerie Boutique in NYC, April 6-May 28. Accompanying the installation and release is a new limited edition: WHQ (Wall Vinyl), 2017, ink jet on adhesive vinyl, 83 x 40 inches, edition of 20. A 1:1 representation of the door, WHQ (Wall Vinyl) is a unique edition with a trompe l’oeil effect.
