Augustine Kofie is a self-taught artist living and working in Los Angeles. He has shown extensively worldwide with highlighted shows in New York, California, Japan, The Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland. In his quest for balance, Kofie harmonizes opposing and contradictory dynamics in his work by setting futuristic compositions against vintage earth-toned palettes, and creating organically complex formations through meticulously structured line-work and layering. The artist has been featured in Juxtapoz, The Huffington Post, LA Weekly, Project Room and Studio Voice.

The work of Paris-based artist Ludo connects the world of plants and animals with our technological universe and “quest for modernism.” Drawn with the precision of botanical illustrations, Ludo’s new order of hybrid organisms is both elegant and fierce. Armored vehicles spawn stag beetle horns; carnivorous plants bare rows of hunting-knife teeth; bees hover, hidden behind gas masks and goggles; automatic weapons crown the head of sunflowers; human skulls cluster together like grapes. Ludo’s work aspires to jolt us out of a longstanding collective denial: despite repeated natural disasters, we refuse to acknowledge our own fragile state on this planet.
