When & Where
At KofiArts we aim to make art and the history and culture behind it, more accessible to a diverse audience through exhibitions, walks, talks, artist's mentoring, workshops, activities and events. Join us on our journey of cultural, historical and artistic exploration.
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.
