Time Travellers to Crop Pickers LAUNCH
Thursday 7th July 2016
7pm - 9.30pm
Be the first to see the new solo exhibition by Alvin Kofi exploring history, economics and migration through portraiture.
Join Alvin Kofi at Dark Sugars as he unveils new work from a collection signifying his return to painting and an exploration of portraiture.
In Time Travellers to Crop Pickers, Alvin Kofi explores the ancient cultures of Africa; examining the origins of our food and the many women who sow and harvest them. Through original paintings and beautiful drawings, Kofi uses monotones to reflect the mysteries, magic, creation stories and frailty of culture contrasted against a vibrant backdrop of the tropical colours of the Crop Pickers.
Originals and a new set of limited edition prints will be available to purchase on the night. Follow KOFIARTS on twitter and facebook as he documents the creation of the Crop Pickers exhibition ‘From Start to Finish’.
Dark Sugars is open daily from from 10am to 10pm
