Krips – “K”, acrylic painting on cotton canvas, 100 x 100 cm, 2021
Krips is one of the highly active graffiti writers on the Romanian scene, with over 10 years of continuous endeavours. With a passion for trains, metros and urban spaces, Krips paints some of the most esthetical graffiti works you can see around the country. His ability to draw clear, bold letters and his very keen sense of colour are combined in paintings that disrupt the monotonous grey, soiled surfaces that frame urban spaces.
Titled “K“, this large painting depicts one of Krips‘ explorations of the letter K. On a gradient background, blending dark blue-green, emerald, turquoise, purple and violet, one can see a wireframe in bold magenta, on top of which sits the slabbed capital letter K, which has a grungy wooden texture and is beautifully coloured with blended hues of golden yellow to powdery pink and light cyan. In the letter’s depth, the colours light up into vivid shades of green, yellow, orange, pink and cyan.
