Upon graduating from art school in Orange County, the artwork of kozyndan (aka Dan and Kazue Kitchens) was uncommonly refined. The duo’s mix of precision European illustration in the style of Moebius and anime-influenced Superflat art from Japan, filtered through Southern California sunshine, immediately found a receptive audience and has been deepening in style and demand ever since.
Since making their debut in Giant Robot magazine, kozyndan’s hyper-detailed combination of pencils with digital finishes has been commissioned by the likes of Nike, Sub Pop records, Neomu (Australia), and International Designers Network (Hong Kong). Recent clients have included Converse and the Coachella Valley Music Festival. They have amassed a loyal following of collectors who buy their original art and limited-edition prints, which capture the moods of various locations – Tokyo, Seattle, New York, and Hong Kong – and insert recurring themes such as robots, rabbits, and Japanese schoolgirls.
kozyndan’s art show will include new prints, paintings, pencil portraits, and drawings. Themes will include bunnies, sea creatures, and combinations of bunnies and sea creatures, as well as a continuation of their strange takes on Victorian portraits. A reception for the artists will be held from 6:30 – 10:00PM on Saturday, June 24.
