White Walls is pleased to present Augustine Kofie’s Structurally Sound, as the artist’s third solo show with White Walls, directly following his sold-out exhibition in Paris. From our point of view, it seems as if Kofie's work becomes more and more complex, more alluring in its experimentation, and more original in its balance between fine art and architectural drawing structure. Definitely go check this one out.

Go back and read Augustine Kofie's feature in the October 2010 issue, and he and El Mac have one of the best discussions two artists/friends/collaborators we have had in the magazine over the past few years. That said, we are always excited to see what Kofie's newest architectural-based works will look like, and Todd Mazer stopped by Kofie's studio prior to the artist's solo show, Working an Angle, at Known Gallery in LA.
