In a new article in NYLON Magazine, The Story Behind Some Of The ’90s Coolest Band Posters – Keeping the art alive by , they discuss with Frank Kozik’s famous 90’s rock poster art.
If you weren’t aware, Kidrobot Creative Director, famed pop culture artist and creator of the Kidrobot Labbit was also the artist behind some of the most famous concert posters ever created. Frank Kozik created concert posters in the 1990’s for bands like Nirvana, Sonic Youth, Nine Inch Nails, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Jimi Hendrix, The Beastie Boys, Smashing Pumpkins and many more. Recently Frank Kozik has created band posters for Blink 182 and Lalapalooza.
The art toy world knows Frank Kozik as the “godfather” of designer art toys but his story is so much more. When people on the Kidrobot team go anywhere with Frank, we are taken back by how this man has impacted so many people in the world but you would never know it until you see people stopping him in the street for photos, people standing in line to get something signed, the crew at the tv station tapping him on the back to tell them the impact he’s made on them. It’s truly crazy that we work get the chance to work with this guy everyday. If you ever have the chance to sit down with him and listen to him tell the stories of the journey of coming from Madrid to America, being in the record industry and running a record label, to his life as an artist and creator of so much “weird” but “cool” shit, you’ll realize that you are sitting with someone that has changed the world… should I even say a living legend.
