Bahari Blue #5 – The Irresistible Art of Kofi Ofosu 

Kofi Ofosu, aka Braku Star, is a freelance character designer and concept artist from Ghana. Other than designing characters, Kofi loves to imagine and build worlds.

Kofi is one of the artists who worked on the award-winning Lake of Tears along with Alfred Achiampong and Setor Fiadzigbey. Kofi has an IP in the works called Champion about boxing. While not much has been revealed about the project, the few character designs Kofi has teased promise an exciting adventure into the sport of punching.

Braku Star is also the lead artist on Selorm Dogoe’s Jujucups project which emerged as one of the finalists of the third preliminaries of Animation du Monde at AAFFia in 2019.

Just like his upcoming project, Champions, Kofi’s art packs a punch!

Enjoy.
