1AM and curator James Brown, are proud to present “Kozik”, an exhibition that pays homage to Frank Kozik’s artistic career over the past 30 years. The show reflects on his iconic work from being a poster artist for renowned bands such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Beastie Boys to a vinyl toy sculptor and designer. The new collection aims to expose his influence on art culture today by showcasing new and original posters by the man himself, Frank Kozik, as well as including select artists to interpret his designs into new narratives.
The killer line-up includes: Frank Kozik and posters and custom toy vinyls by Jermaine Rogers, the Print Mafia, Brian Ewing, Scrojo, Artmymind, Run DMB, Tim Munz, Grimsheep, JC Rivera, Gomi, Luihz Unreal, Kevin Gosselin, Igor Ventura, Map-Map, Ardabus Rubber, Lick Your Elbow, Chauskosis, and Sergio Mancini.
Kozik’s work exemplifies how cutting edge images foster great designs. Whether it’s a satanic take on the refinery of tea, a smoking rabbit or a satirical take on 80’s political icons, he is always challenging our perceived outlook. His dark humor pushes the boundaries of our accepted aesthetics.
Join us Friday, November 2nd from 6:30-9:30pm for the melting pot of everything Kozik- rock posters, sculptures, tongue-in-cheek humor, and custom toys!
