"His art speaks for itself ... has a language, emotional language, a visual language, a depth to it, that once you become familiar with it, it's hard to see the world without its influence ... he has been able to develop this language that, once you become familiar with, you'll never see the world the same way ... I find myself trying to look at crowds and trying to look at anonymous crowds through the eyes of Ofill, through the eyes of his work ... you try to see these situations, and these moments in time, and they mean something completely different; and if it wasn't for his language, if it wasn't for his creativity, I would have never been able to, perhaps, see those moments in that way ... ."
