Alvin Kofi is an artist whose work undoubtedly sits on its own when it comes to capturing the vision of a contemporary African-Caribbean expression.
UK-born of West Indian parents, he quickly established his reputation as one of the leading UK Black artists having produced the first independent commercial prints collection.
Working across a variety of media, his talents show a strong graphic execution, but he quite comfortably plays with the more traditional media of oils, acrylic and mixed media. His fascination with the human form is evident in all his work and its connection with the mother land and its traditional cultures. But he also is conscious of and displays the present day dilemmas of diaspora Africans in the narratives of his work.
