Cache x Kofie x Belmont

2 Jun

Thanks to Cache and Augustine Kofie for the video.

Cache writes… “Here is a little video of a fun morning painting in LA. This was the first wall that i hit illegally with the chickens back in 2003-2004 , It was in bad shape. I had the honor of inviting Kofie to come thru and bless the wall with some amazing work . This is one of those rare occasions were I really allowed another artist to take control of the wall and I just step back and enjoy the outcome .. LA rocks!”

Agents x The Megaro Project

2 May

Thanks to Agents of Change (Remi Rough, Augustine Kofie, Steve More and LXone) for the video.

This film details the creation of a monumental 450m2 mural opposite St. Pancras International in Kings Cross, London. The mural, which has been painted by four members of Agents of Change – Remi/Rough, Steve More, LX.One and Augustine Kofie – encompasses two sides of a five storey Georgian building.

The mural took over two weeks to complete working from an initial design – which was bounced between Los Angeles, Edinburgh, Paris and London – and was commissioned by the hotel’s owner and The Narrative. From a design perspective the artists collaborated to create a single work that would utilise their different styles and perspectives to create a modern mural that integrates with the surrounding area, and emphasises Kings Cross’ status as a major gateway for international and national visitors alike.

The influence of the mural continues inside the building with a permanent collection of artworks created for the restaurant and a one of a kind reception interior designed and executed by AoC for the attatched hotel. The challenge was to create a mural that would at once enhance the complex multifaceted character of the grand Georgian building and reflect the strong modern geometry in the artists work.

Augustine Kofie x Circulatory

17 Apr

Thanks to Colin Day, White Walls and Augustine Kofie for the video.

The works comprising Circulatory System feature a clean delineation of geometric forms and divisions of space with a technical precision that resembles architectural drafting. Kofie’s understanding of illustration and linework results in a style of meticulous rendering that never seems cold or sterile due to the delicate sense of balance maintained within each composition. The muted palette softens the sharp lines, and imparts a simple elegance to the complicated arrangements of shape.

Unintended Calculations

29 Feb

Thanks Grounded TV, Augustine Kofie, Remi/Rough, Jerry Inscoe and Scott Sueme for the video!

Curated by Indigo, Unintended Calculations brought together a group of internationally renowned artists – Augustine Kofie (LA), Jerry Inscoe (PDX), Remi/Rough (LDN) and Scott Sueme (VAN) – for an exhibition at Becker Galleries and two collaborative murals at Moda Hotel exploring four very different approaches to abstraction. Working in a variety of mediums, these artists have evolved the letter form building blocks of their shared graffiti background, deconstructing and rebuilding them as compositions of color, line, shape and movement.
