kozyndan is actually the Los Angeles based husband and wife team, Kozy and Dan Kitchens. Their minds and bodies melded in a freakish cell phone accident in 2001 and they have been creating artwork together ever since. Using pencil, paint, computers and whatever other means they deem necessary, they create humorous works of art and illustrations that reflect love affair with, and unease within, the modern urban world and it's technology.
If you’re unfamiliar with Kozyndan, aka Kozy and Dan, they’re an awesomely talented illustration star duo out of LA, California. They just updated their site with a handful of new Panorama drawings– and words can not describe how sick they are. Click through to the site to see this Tokyo Panorama in full size. From their site: The complexity of the average street corner in Tokyo is astounding. kozy’s ability to sit and concentrate on these myriad details is even more astounding. I asked to have myself laid onto the street so I could be promptly run over - kozy had no problem what so ever accommodating that request. Plus there are 2 naked business men in the Illustration, though one of them can only be seen on a full size print of the image. Most of the prints are available as plain old prints, archival prints and offset prints. They sell out quickly, and are very limited edition.
Part of the Baltic Center's current "Spank the Monkey" show, Playstation commissioned a documentary about the husband-and-wife artists known as Kozyndan. Shot in HD, the 20 minute piece has interviews with Giant Robot founding editor Eric Nakamura, one of their collectors, Oliver Luckett, sixspace gallerist Caryn Coleman and friends of the duo, who all chime in to help describe their epic panoramas and their relationship. The result is a candid portrait that tells the story of how the young LA-based couple went from students at a local public college to exhibiting internationally. You can watch or download it here.

The graffiti equivalent of the super heroes’ Justice League of America, the group show “Spank the Monkey,” opens today, Wednesday, 27 September 2006, at The Baltic Center for Contemporary Art in Gateshead, England. Featuring some of CH’s favorite artists, including Chiho Aoshima, Dzine, Faile, Shepard Fairey, Banksy, Freaks Gallery, Os Gemeos, Groovisions, Invader, Barry McGee, Ryan McGinness, Takashi Murakami, David Shrigley, Swoon, Ed Templeton, and Miss Van, some of the all-stars have made installations in the gallery and some have done some planned public interventions throughout the area. But locals should be on the lookout for some extra-curricular art—now that the show is up, there's sure to be a lot of bombing before the artists leave.
