[ During my stay in Portland, Oregon during the ‘Three The Hard Way’ exhibition at Breeze Block Gallery, John Goff of Serigraphic Systems Inc. and I took some time out to create this 3-color screen print, my first with SSI. The entire production was completed on the campus of Portland State University in the arts and science campus. I painted the transparencies, mixed the specific colors and John hand pulled the edition by hand. Each is signed with my A.Kofie signature and embossed with the Agents of Change & TRANSCEND icons, same used on Jerry Joker Inscoes recent edition with SSI.

The title is a play on words referring to isometric, the exercise of illustrating 3-dimensional renderings in a 2-dimensional manner. Bump that against the hectic balance of a fast paced structural case study. The cool blue color way manages to warm the sharp illustrations as well as hint to my admiration of the outdated process of blueprints. ]

I’m very proud to announce the release of this recent print. This will mark my forth official multi color screen-print in my career, and one if my finest.

“Study of A Manifest Horizon is a 5 color, hand pulled, screen print on Coventry Rag 320gsm archival paper with hand-torn deckled edges at 18 x 24 inches (Standard frame size). Each print is signed and numbered by the artist on the front with certificate of Authenticity included.

What makes this a unique print is that each transparency was painted by hand with opaque inks, markers and spray paint, making the final print as painterly and illustrated as a true hand could. Completely hand pulled by Ryan McIntosh of Intellectual Property Prints.

This edition of 50 has sold out.

Select Exhibition Works 2001 - 2012

 

This is best described as catalogue-ish type direct breakdown of very select studio works spanning 12 years of my art career. Being this is my first true publication I wanted to make sure that the first manifestation covered a body of works that can clearly show my evolution and growth. From my first true solo show at Frank Sosa’s infamous 33 1/3 bookstore [Banksy’s first LA show followed my solo there in 2001] to the Graffuturism show in Los Angeles to finish off 2012 and about 25 select shown in between.

 

Included excerpts from Jaybo Monk, Christina Ochoa, Justin Giarla, Nastia Voynovskys & Todd Mazer.

Photography from Michael Underwood, Todd Mazer, Mike Cuffe for Warholian, Theo Jemison, Ian Campbell, Paul Doubell , Ixchel Lara and myself.

 

Many thanks to everyone that came through on the words and images, and to Michael Hernandez for the layout and Toowee for her support.

I was invited via Juxtapoz to submit some of my artwork to the Uncommon Project. They produce and sell customizable mobile phone cases for most Apple products. You’re able to scale and rotate images from a vast selection of artists to get a composition you like on a mobile device case.

To date there are about 8 images to choose from in my collection. All are taken from sellect works from both my personal collection, commisions and gallery works. Below is just a small sample of your options.
