Augustine Kofie “Circulations” Wall In San Francisco

Posted on October 7, 2013

Clearly operating on a different plane, graffiti writer and Street Artist Augustine Kofie continues to steadily evolve his studio practice even while hitting the occasional wall. One of the artists we featured in our Geometricks program last year, the draftsman has since been featured in his first non-US  solo show in the spring at the new Open Space gallery in Paris and he just ended his most recent solo show at White Walls gallery in San Francisco.

While there preparing for “Structurally Sound”, Augustine mixed up some custom buckets of paint to realize a new mural in the Tenderloin District. Ever a conservationist, he incorporated the original Patek-Ecklon signage from the 1940s into an abstract composition, which along with his unerring palette and sharp eye, updated the landmark into his signature retro-futurist vision.

Our special thanks to photographer and BSA collaborator Brock Brake  for sharing these images with readers of Kofie installing the new wall.
