Krink was founded by KR who grew up in Queens NYC. Graffiti was part of the urban environment and inner-city way of life. Back in the 80’s the Queens artists had to improvise making markers with borrowed/stolen paint writing in illegal areas experimenting with different tools and Grafitti writing methods.
Graffiti on trains was stamped out in the late 80’s so the artists attacked the streets and roads having to become more mobile in the process. The old homemade markers were obsolete to bulky and mess to carry the artists turned to silver paint markers but they were inadequate in many different ways.
KR moved to San Francisco in the early nineties where writing took place in different areas such as car parks and specific areas. KR ignored the regular areas and used SF to experiment with different tools and techniques making larger and drippier marker tags. During this period KR began making his own inks Krink (KR, ink) was born and soon dominated the streets of San Francisco.
Krink was soon covering the walls of NYC when KR returned in 1998. Around this time the first Alife store opened (now an established lifestyle-driven company focussed on art and creativity). A favourite place for local artists they asked KR to start bottling his paint so they could sell it. The brand grew from there and is now a firm favourite with Grafitti writers the world over.
