Born and based in Los Angeles and active in the Southern California graffiti scene since the mid-nineties, multimedia artist Augustine Kofie (b. 1973) works in painting, collage and mural interventions. Kofie’s fine art practice draws together the languages of graffiti’s deconstructive lettering, mechanical drafting, modern architecture, and plunderphonics, creating a unique take on constructivist abstraction, or as the artists refers to as 'Vintage Futurism'.
Recent exhibitions include: UP THE WALL, KIRK Gallery, Denmark; STATE OF MIND, Hashimoto Contemporary, New York City; ADVENTURES IN TONALITY, Gallery Openspace Paris & DARKEST BEFORE THE DAWN, Stolenspace Gallery, London.
Kofie has been featured in Juxtapoz, Graffiti Art Magazine, The World Atlas of Street Art and Graffiti, Le Petit Voyeur and VNA Magazine 26. His work is in both national and international private collections.
