Brooklyn-based graffiti artist Craig “KR” Costello of KRINK is holding a solo exhibition at Copenhagen’s Eighteen Gallery. “New Work” features the artist’s new body of work featuring bold two-color pieces. Set against simple white backgrounds, dripping black lines give the work texture and movement, elevating Costello’s signature graffiti aesthetic.

“Minimalist, experimental, intellectual and primal,” a statement on the exhibition reads. “Black and white abstraction. Formal and yet technically avant-garde. Vibrant, refined, gestural — in and out of control. Arrested motion. Perfected through repetition, but never perfect. The work of Craig Costello is all about equilibrium. Surface, movement, paint, application and reaction.”

Check out installation views from “New Work” in the gallery above. The exhibition is open to the public from now until February 22.

Save the date | @eighteengallery is pleased to present New Work by @craigcostellonyc, opening next Friday, January 17. #CraigCostello, born 1971 in New York, is the owner and founder of @krinknyc, innovating the finest inks, high quality paint markers and artist equipments. Using his own paint and tools (from modified fire extinguishers to garden sprayers and shoe polish bottles), his monumental black/white drip paintings and site-specific installations are formal and primal explorations, yet technically avantgarde.
