In «The Golden State», kozyndan have created a body of work in honor of both the golden state of California they call home, and humanitarian values that must be fostered in order to see our world through these troubled times. This show is a love letter to California and Japan, both location have inspire the husband and wife duo throughout their career.
The upstairs gallery will feature new paintings and illustrations, many completed in Japan. The artists collaborated with skilled masters to take kozyndan's iconic style to create pieces in mediums rarely seen in galleries today, including Japanese art scrolls and illustrated screens.
