Back in October, we shared with you a project that the Library Street Collective in Detroit had arranged at a downtown mixed-use development (referred to as “The Z”). A series of murals had been painted already in the ongoing venture at that time and now we have updates for you on some of the newer walls. This particular piece we are focusing on here was created by Augustine Kofie (featured) as you can see from the architectural influenced abstract imagery. Photo credit: Theonepointeight.
