Alvin Kofi is the driving force behind KofiArts. He established a career in the UK art world as a fine artist in the 1990's, and lead the way in his field by producing The Humble range - the first UK distributed black print collection in 1998. His work has been exhibited internationally in the USA, Europe and the Caribbean. As a fine artist he plays with the human form using a rhythmic bold stylized language that gives his work a distinct and unique contemporary expression.
