KRINK New York City
This product is currently sold out.
Craig Costello, aka KR, grew up in Queens, New York, where graffiti was part of the landscape. While living in San Francisco, he quickly garnered attention when his signature “KR” tag popped up throughout the city. As his prominence grew on the streets of NYC and San Francisco, he began to create better tools, ultimately launching his own brand (KRINK) of homemade markers and mops. In KRINK: GRAFFITI, ART, AND INVENTION, Costello has compiled a visual memoir:
from his early days of the ’80s and ’90s and launch with the hip New York City retailer Alife, which put his brand on the map, to his evolution as an artist and high-fashion collaborator. The book showcases Costello’s seminal style and his extensive body of work, including site specific installations around the world. It also chronicles his collaborations with Alife, Nike, Coach, Moncler, Modernica, Marc Jacobs, Levi Strauss & Co., Mini (BMW), Casio, Smith Optics, Carhartt, Kidrobot, Medicom Toy, agnès b., and Colette, among many others. Today, Costello’s reach and influence goes far beyond urban street culture. KRINK is both stylish and informative, capturing the ethos of punk and hip-hop culture, and is sure to appeal to the fans of high/low cultural crossovers, as well as die-hard fans of street art and fashion.
