More about Kofie: Born and raised in Los Angeles, Augustine Kofie gained notoriety in the 1990s through his graffiti and mural works, using his experiences to find his love for construction and form. By drafting, sketching, and stretching perspectives of letters, Kofie gave rise to an aesthetic that blends sharp angles and geometric shapes with a soulful and organic form of abstraction. Kofie’s “retro-futuristic” aesthetic mirrors the city of Los Angeles – sharp, angular, ever creepingly modern, and with a soul that spans over 150 years of beauty, decay, innovation, and change.
More about ‘Above the Streets”: ArtShare will be splashing Kofie’s work around the city through different outdoor media channels: large billboards, bus benches, digital billboards, and an exhibition and benefit auction for their organization. Proceeds from the auction will provide funding for a remodeling of the building and gallery space to continue providing an accessible space for artists and art lovers alike.
