Augustine Kofie - Circulate System Shift
This geometric print by Augustine Kofie, also known as KofieOne, titled Circulate System Shift, represents another demonstration of the artist’s love for illustration and design. In a pastel-colored web of shapes and lines, he transforms reality into abstract visions, recalling the notions of futurism, constructivism and abstract expressionism – a masterful technique and a retro-futuristic aesthetic he applies for his murals, compositions and illustrations as well. This is a 77 x 56 cm, 6-Color Serigraph on 290gsm Coventry rag fine art paper offered by Artstübli gallery in Basel, Switzerland. It is signed, number, and it is a part of an edition of 100.

Anthony Lister - Untitled Coffee Drawing 5
From the series of Anthony Lister’s coffee drawings, we chose the number 5, a 2012 mixed media drawing which comes as a unique piece of work. Done in ink on paper, it is signed, framed and in excellent condition. As big as 41.91 x 33.02 x 3.81 cm, it continues the Australian artist’s quest to paint female figures using different techniques and materials, aside from works that often parody modern-day life. Influenced by graffiti, installations, Pop art, cartoons, comic books and stencilling, the artistry of Anthony Lister is truly remarkable, revealing a tension between figuration, abstraction, but sometimes also realism.
