Kozyndan is comprised of husband and wife Dan and Kozue Kitchens. This Los Angeles-based duo create work that traverses both the fine art and commercial realms. Hailing respectively from Yamanashi, Japan and Orange County, California, Kozy and Dan's personal and artistic collaboration began in art school in the late 1990's. Now widely acclaimed for their digitally painted pencil drawings of contemporary urban cityscapes and cleverly re-interpreted Japanese ukiyo-e prints, Kozyndan's work reflects their unease and love of the modern world. In their finely rendered urban panoramas, Kozyndan visualize an alternately utopic and dystopic universe, where East meets West, and absurd characters and situations playfully encompass everyday life.
Kozyndan exhibited at Magic Pony's sister gallery, Narwhal, with "Breaking Circles, Broken Light" (2012) and "The Unknown Portraits" (2009), and at Magic Pony with "Tales of the Bunnyfish" (2007) and "Lactaid Dreams" (2004). They also contributed to Magic Pony holiday exhibitions in 2005 and 2006.
