WK Interact: Project Brave

September 11—October 11, 2011
Kent Avenue (between North 4th & North 5th Streets)
Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York
To commemorate the 10th Anniversary of 9/11, street artist WK Interact collaborates with New York City firefighters to create a large-scale public mural, measuring 328 feet (100 meters) wide. Full of passion and motion, his images of the iconic firefighter (NY’s bravest) symbolize the many heroes that helped New Yorkers survive the tragic events of 2001, and how their courage inspired the world.

WK was born in Caen, France. He has lived and worked in NYC for the past 20 years. He feels grateful and proud to be a French New Yorker. With this mural he wishes to pay tribute to all the heroes of 9/11 and give something back to the city of New York.
