About the Artist:
Frank Kozik was born near Madrid, Spain and immigrated to the United States, settling in Austin, Texas. Credited with single-handedly reviving the "lost" art of the concert poster, Kozik's art career emerged from his connection to Austin's cultural explosion in the mid 80's. Starting with band flyers that he posted on telephone poles, Kozik quickly garnered a solid fan-base who dug his graphically compelling and culturally relevant work.
To date, Kozik has designed over 1000 concert posters and album covers for artists as diverse as The Sex Pistols and Nivana; founded Man's Ruin Records; directed music videos for Soundgarden; staged over 60 gallery shows worldwide; created artwork for some of the world's biggest companies; and published several volumes of his work. Since 2000, Kozik's main artistic focus has been in the design and production of vinyl art toys. The icon of Kozik's toy empire is his Smorkin' Labbit character, but he is also the guy behind Chumps, Mongers and pretty much everything else that smorks.
About Smorkin' Labbit:
Smorkin' Labbit is a smoking, unshaven rabbit character created by pop artist Frank Kozik. Originally featured in Kozik's nineties rock poster art, Labbit and his signature butthole were adopted by Kidrobot in 2003. This beloved chain smoker is a born classic.
But who cares. Labbit doesn't.
