Kozue Kitchens, born in Yamanashi, Japan.
Dan Kitchens, born in Long Beach, California, USA.
Both live and work in Los Angeles, USA.
Prolific collaborators Kozyndan—partners Kozue and Dan Kitchens—are known for their beguiling drawings, prints, and sculptures that seduce through their facility with degrees of representation that shift from the photorealistic to the cartoonish, their gentle humour, wanton use of colour and sometimes haunting imagery.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.”
