Loosely inspired by childhood memories of hand-held construction toys such as Legos & wooden blocks, Kofie's work reflects moods which are Cubist, Abstract & Architectural all in one. As a self-taught multi-medium artist, he has been producing various works in his home town of Los Angeles for over 15 years both individually and with select creative peers.
As an enthusiast for the audio and visual refuse of the the past, Kofie's artwork reflects a life-long interest in diverse genres of West Coast Hard Edge, Futurism, Dutch Modernism as well as the progressive west coast Graffiti arts movement from which his artwork first gained attention in the mid '90s.
His automatistic creative process is unmistakably informed by his appreciation for line work, a natural color pallet, layering and composition. Vintage cut n' paste design and a draftsman-like thought process take precedence over the ease of modern digital production.
Kofie's fine art works emphasize depth, movement and futuristic growth, yet have an uncanny resemblance to ephemeral works produced in the '60s or '70s.
