Last month, Los Angeles-based draftsman, Kofie, participated in the “Step in the Arena” event that was held in Eindhoven, Netherlands. Curated by Chas of LoveLetters crew, over 250 local and international graffiti artists came through to display their talents. Kofie collaborated with various artists on a number of murals, painting his distinct geometrical lines and forms associated with his style, instantly recognizable.

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.

It’s been a while since we heard new news from Los Angeles-based draftsman, Kofie. He recently completed two new paintings for separate group shows, one is currently up at Known Gallery with a Sesame Street theme and the other will be at Crewest Gallery opening this weekend. This new work is dense with lines, composition, and fantastic layering techniques, a refined artist in his craft.

Circulatory System will include 30 new works in Kofie's now trademark architectural drafting style. The exhibition opens November 12, 2011. Preview after the jump . . .

We just saw that El Mac and Kofie, two former Juxtapoz features and oft-collaborators, just finished this fantastic new mural at Los Angeles' KROQ radio station's Sound Space. Nice piece in the spirit of music, with some signature touches from both Mac and Kofie.
