Five Points Art House is pleased to announce the first solo show in San Francisco for Oakland painter Obi Kaufmann.
Kaufmann’s figurative paintings draw a conceptual line between contemporary street-art and archaic cave-art. Incorporating elements of illustration and graffiti by combining traditional and contemporary media, Kaufmann’s work has as much spray paint on the surface as it does is charcoal and oil paint.
In WARFLOWER, Kaufmann depicts expressionist images that explore themes of beauty and violence. The collection describes an elaborate personal mythology of angels and demons that dance and attend to their own private agendas.
Obi Kaufmann’s exhibition history includes recent sold-out shows in both Oakland and Seattle. He runs the website www.oaklandsweetart.info and curates the Swee(t)Art Drawing Gallery in Oakland.
