Immersive, impressive, and scenographic at Bastille Design Center, Paris

 

 After the success of his first Paris solo show, “California Soul”, in April 2013,  Openspace Gallery is delighted to invite Augustine Kofie again to exhibit in the French capitale. The Los Angeles-based artist is one of the leaders of the Graffuturism movement. Practising graffiti in the 90s, exhibiting his studio work in the early 2000s, 2009 marked a turning point in his career, laying the foundations for his current work.
His artworks full of lines and structured shapes are composed with a mastery of scale and movement. A vintage feel also pervades his work; from the 60s magazine illustrations he uses for his collages to the salvaged materials he uses as media, through his choice of colours.

THE EXHIBITION

Following the off site exhibition by the French artist Éric Lacan, the Openspace gallery is curating Augustine Kofie’s second exhibition in France, from 27 November to 13 December. Once again, the exhibition will take place in the architecturally monumental, majestic 19th-century setting of the Bastille Design Center, where wood reigns supreme (even on the floor),
