The 3rd Annual Above the Streets fundraising event benefitting Art Share L.A. will be held on Thursday, October 27, 2016. This year we will honor the 6th Street Bridge Project for contributing to the transformation of Downtown Los Angeles. And we have the pleasure of highlighting artist/muralist Augustine Kofie.
Augustine’s work will be splashed around the City of Los Angeles through different outdoor media channels: large billboards, digital billboards, bus bench ads, and more! Using drafting as his inspiration, Augustine’s architectural images align with the many new buildings and changes coming to our city.
Each year, Art Share L.A. serves our community of emerging artists and supports them through their artistic journey. Last year we shepherded, 350 artists through our gallery and opportunities programs; hosted 4,500 attendees to various events; held 25 gallery shows; 150 musical performances and 50+ readings and poetry events. Art Share is where you come to discover new talent – Art Lives Here!
Your sponsorship will ensure Art Share’s ability to continue to support local, emerging artists in their journey of becoming professional artists.

FEATURED ARTIST: AUGUSTINE KOFIE
Inspired by the basic building blocks of the geometric world, Augustine Kofie has formed a retro-futuristic aesthetic which transplants these shapes and angles into a soulful, organic, yet highly mathematical form of abstraction. Merging his traditional graffiti education, his inclination toward “certain colour forms and certain application techniques”, with his deep love of illustration and preliminary design, his fondness for “drafts, architectural renderings and pre-production concepts”, Kofie plays with form and line, with balance and depth, twisting and manipulating his murals, his illustrations, his compositions, into ever new and dramatic arrangements.
