Augustine Kofie for Fresh PerspectivesJuxtapoz // Monday, 04 Apr 2011
Juxtapoz Magazine was selected to be one of the five ambassadors of Fresh Perspectives – a new transmedia art project initiated by Lexus to promote their newly launched Hybrid CT 200. Fresh Perspectives has gathered six artists to promote the new Hybrid, and one of the selected artists is our good friend and Jux contributor, Augustine Kofie.
Along with Inspired Magazine, Design Milk, Ruby Hornet, and others, we are showcasing some of the film's that feature the artists Kofie, Juxtapoz Detroit contributor Tod Seelie, designer Robert James, chef Craig Thornton, musician V, and artist Jeff Nishinaka.
Lexus gathered the six artists from different areas of contemporary art (from photography to music, design, fashion and even cooking!) and provided them with the opportunity to create unique unconventional pieces of art in order to 1) entertain us, and 2) show how to create art with a new perspecitve.
First things first, here is the short piece on Augustine Kofie, whom we featured in October 2010 in the magazine.
