Los Angeles-based artist, Kofie, has been painting abstract geometric shapes and forms long before it became fashionable among the current wave of street artists. Loosely influenced by architectural drafting, Kofie’s work is rich in composition and detail. This piece entitled “Highlander System” was painted at the corner of Highland and Melrose in Los Angeles, with spraypaint and acrylic.

Kofie who we have featured extensively over the years, recently completed a new mural in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco entitled "Circulations in the Tenderloin." An original sign (Patek-Ecklon) appears at the top of the wall that was originally painted in the mid ‘40s. Kofie made the decision to leave the signage (good call) and work around it painting abstract geometric designs and shapes. You can see the mural in person at the corner of Larking and Polk if you find yourself in San Francisco.
