Inspiration comes from your surroundings and knowing who you are as an artist. It takes a deeply motivated and inspired individual to move from graffiti into installation and clothing without ever losing perspective.
Augustine Kofie is a street artist who embodies that.
Kofie, born and bred in California, is a self-taught artist, moving between clothing and graphics, street art, mixed-media, installation art, visual art, and music.
Already in 2009, he’s scheduled to appear in 9 exhibitions, and two of them are solos – one in LA (Feb 28 – March 29, 2009) and one (April 2009) in NYC.
Kofie’s work is centered on the environment and architectural/geometrical aspects. His work is always clean and spells out it’s intention with placement and color. With his work highly regarded around the world, especially in Japan, he has become one of the best-known American street artists.
