At HIVE we love to work, we love being commercial artists, but we also love to make images just for ourselves and be continually inspired. Otherwise what's the point? We love people who are also passionate about what they do, and few are as passionate and motivated as Ivan Cofield. An artist, a dancer, a thinker, and a guy with larger than life charisma, as evident by the 13ft mural he painted on HIVE STUDIO's wall.

An homage to Richard Avedon's Dovima with the Elephants, Ivan created a space for our Dovima in graffiti letters spelling HIVE STUDIO, bursting through the studio wall.

More about Ivan:

Ivan Cofield was born in Atlanta, Georgia where he and his older brother both used drawing as a creative outlet. His brother simultaneously inspired him while pushing him competitively. As his love for dance grew, visual arts took a back seat while he mastered this new craft until Ivan moved to New York City in hopes to explore his talents in a new environment. He now resides in Brooklyn, New York where he spends his days and nights creating in all of the forms and mediums that he's grown to love.
