Often credited with single handedly reviving the lost art of the concert poster, Frank Kozik's creative career rose largely out of his enthusiasm for Austin’s growing underground punk rock scene in the early eighties. In 1981, he began designing and posting black and white flyers for friends’ bands on telephone poles. His reputation quickly grew as an artist whose work was graphically compelling and culturally gripping.
An entirely self-taught artist, Kozik eventually transitioned into producing large, colorful silkscreen concert posters, which found international success. He has created artwork for a wide range of musicians such as Pearl Jam, The White Stripes, The Beastie Boys, Green Day, Neil Young and Nirvana. In the mid-nineties he directed several music videos, including Soundgarden’s “Pretty Noose”.
In 2001, Kozik devoted himself full time to fine art, design and the newly emerging art toy movement. Presently he works closely with Kidrobot and many other boutique toy companies to produce his toys including many versions of his iconic Labbit character. To date he has designed over 500 different limited edition figures. He also creates hand painted toy editions and still designs posters.
In addition to his outside clients, 2007 saw him launch his own brand, Ultraviolence. Under this imprint, Kozik produces limited edition art objects in vinyl, fiberglass, bronze and Limoges porcelain that are often more complex in content and larger in scale than his other vinyl toys. Kozik’s work has been exhibited in over 40 group shows and 35 one-man gallery exhibits worldwide.
He currently lives and works in San Francisco with his wife, Sharon, and their four cats.
