Augustine Kofie – Build From Memory


L’artiste américain Augustine Kofie présente sa troisième exposition solo à Paris. BUILD FROM MEMORY se tient à la Galerie Openspace du 25 février au 1er avril 2017.

Autodidacte issu de l’illustration et du graffiti qu’il a exercé plus de 20 ans, Kofie a poussé son art jusqu’à l’abstraction. Partant des lettrages qu’il déconstruit et déstructure, il créée des toiles abstraites, sortes de constructivisme urbain notamment à partir de matériaux et vieux documents récupérés. Dans Build From Memory, il rend hommage à toutes ses années pendant lesquelles il a développé son style aussi inspiré du dessin industriel et qualifié de Graffuturisme.

Self-taught artist coming from illustration and graffiti he practiced for more than 20 years, Kofie has pushed his art to abstraction. Starting from the letters he deconstructs and destructures, he creates abstract paintings, sort of urban constructivism built from found materials and old documents. In Build From Memory, he pays tribute to all his years in which he developed his style also inspired by industrial design and called Graffuturism.
