More about Frank Kozik
Kozik’s art is largely influenced by his experience growing up in Spain under a dictator. He is often credited for the revival of the concert poster. His work began in 1981 with the growing underground punk rock scene. He started designing black and white flyers for friends’ bands and posting them on telephone poles. As appreciation for Kozik’s style and art grew, he transitioned to producing large colorful silkscreen concert posters for a wide range of musicians like Pearl Jam, The White Stripes, The Beastie Boys, Green Day and Nirvana.
In 1993, Kozik started his own record label, Man’s Ruin Records, but later closed it in 2001 to devote himself to fine art, design and the new toy movement. Currently, Kozik works closely with Kidrobot and many other toy boutique companies. He also designs and creates larger pieces of art for his own brand, Ultraviolence.
He currently resides in San Francisco with his wife, Sharon, and their four cats.
