The Art of Frank Kozik - American poster artist
A Frank Kozik Biography
Frank Kozik was born in Spain but has lived most of his life in the United States. He is a music concert and movie poster artist who has also created sculptures and comic toys. His posters often feature bright colors, following in the vein of other famous poster artists like Peter Max. Some of Kozik's rarer poster prints sell for hundreds of dollars.
Frank Kozik was tapped by director Richard Linklater to design a poster for the opening of his first feature film, Dazed and Confused. That poster, which features a false-color image of O'Bannion's (Ben Affleck) car, now sells for up to $400 on sites like eBay.
Another famous Kozik poster series that had nothing to do with music concerts was his "Love American Style" posters which featured images of Richard Nixon and Charles Manson.
Kozik has designed posters for Butthole Surfers, Filter, Everclear, Slayer, Sonic Youth, Green Day, Red Hot Chili Peppers and many others.
