Biography / Augustine Kofie

Los Angeles native Augustine Kofie, is an artist that uses balance and depth in manipulating his murals, his designs and his structures, transforming them into innovative and intense arrangements. He has formed an aesthetic that shifts angles into expressive and highly calculated perspectives. Augustine Kofie’s works have been featured in the URBAN NATION 2018 exhibition, ‘UN-DERSTAND The Power of Art as a Social Architect’.

Kofie’s instinct to draw was cultivated through the creativity of his mother who studied fine arts at UCLA, Kofie used the leftover supplies that lay around their house to experiment on his own. Although his education in art never went further than high school, Augustine’s real education in art developed and matured through his time spent painting graffiti, coming to distinction in the LA scene in the mid 90s. His desire to explore and experiment with his surroundings means that he is always challenging his own ideas and preconceptions. Augustine Kofie is a present-day muralist who has integrated a vibrant and energetic style to his work, a technique that digs deep into illustrative art and is pioneering at the same time.
