To commemorate the upcoming South Central DLC pack for Midnight Club: Los Angeles, we are excited to announce an exclusive partnership with three visionary Los Angeles based artists—Augustine Kofie, Jeff Soto, and Coop—to create a unique artist series around the blockbuster racing game. Their inspiration was guided by the authentic speed, vehicles, and culture of Los Angeles that are so present in the game. The result of their work enhances and realizes Rockstar’s goal to create the most compelling and immersive virtual Los Angeles to race in ever seen on consoles. The one-of-a-kind designs can be seen within the game and adorning limited edition apparel, prints and other items. You can find a selection of in-game screenshots featuring the iconic art on our FTP, linked below. Midnight Club: Los Angeles – South Central hits the Playstation Network and Xbox LIVE on March 19.

Augustine Kofie – Loosely inspired by childhood memories of handheld construction toys such as Legos & wooden blocks, Kofie’s work reflects moods which are both Cubist, Abstract & Architectural all in one. He has been producing various works in his home town of Los Angeles for over 15 years. As an enthusiast for the audio and visual refuse of the past, Kofie’s artwork reflects a life-long interest in diverse genres of Western Art, Russian avant-garde, Dutch Modernism as well as the progressive west coast Graffiti Arts movement.

Jeff Soto – Through striking visual imagery, Jeff Soto communicates profound visions and fears, nostalgia of his youth, and themes of love, lust, and hope. Soto’s distinct color palette, subject matter, technique and bold themes resonate with a growing audience. Inspired by childhood toys, the colorful lifestyle of skateboarding and graffiti, hip-hop and popular culture, Soto’s representational work is simultaneously accessible and stimulating.

Coop – Coop (aka Chris Cooper) finished high school, skipped art school, and arrived in Los Angeles in the late 80’s where he immediately got to work subverting the mainstream. Chances are good you’ve seen some manifestation of his merchandising juggernaut: smoking devils, devil-girls, hotrods or space aliens on rock posters, t-shirts, hats, skateboards, toys, shot glasses, Zippo lighters, and much more. He’s created posters for Nirvana, Soundgarden, The Sex Pistols and many others, and album cover art for everyone from the Monomen to the Ramones.
