Kojo Griffin

Atlanta-based artist Kojo Griffin is known for his anthropomorphic drawings that explore various states of human emotion within the context of real-life situations. His psychologically charged works feature a cast of reoccurring characters, often based on fairytale tropes. At once playful and cutting, Griffin’s figures capture the grief, heartbreak and strange realities of everyday life. Influenced by his academic background in psychology, Griffin weaves an uncertain and at times treacherous narrative, punctuated by wry humor and down-to-earth imagery.


A self-taught artist, Griffin’s work was exhibited in the Whitney Biennial 2000 at the Whitney Museum of American Art, NY and Freestyle, at The Studio Museum in Harlem, NY, NY, 2001.  His work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City, the Tubman African American Museum in Macon, Georgia, and the Mint Museum of Art in Charlotte, North Carolina.
