Kozyndan are Dan and Kozue Kitchens. The Los Angeles based, self proclaimed 'Mad Scientists' of the art world, who have made waves on the international art scene... Their motto is, and has always been, Keep It Unreal...
Since the late 1990s, their collaboration has resulted in a series of personal works that often reflect their affection – and repulsion – for the rampant urban sprawl and technological overload that characterise everyday city life. Their detailed drawings portray realistic urban panoramas, which on closer inspection often reveal absurd scenarios. In one, for example ‘Uprisings’ which pays homage to ‘The Great Wave of Kanagawa' by Hokusai but with tons of tiny bunnies forming the crest of the wave.
They have appeared in group shows alongside Banksy, Barry McGhee, and as part of the hughly popular Spank the Monkey exhibition at the Baltic. Kozyndan recently had a book published of their beautiful work called 'Unknown Portraits'.
