La sensibilidad del mundo oriental desde occidente. Kozyndan
lo conforman un matrimonio artístico formado por Dan y Kozy
, radicados en Santa Mónica (Los Angeles). Además de esa sensibilidad detallística de las ilustraciones, también se puede apreciar un gran sentido del humor. Son especialmente conocidos por haber diseñado las cubiertas de algunos CD de grupos como The Postal Service y Weezer.

Since the late 1990s, the collaboration between the kozyndan has resulted in a series of personal works that often reflect their affection – and repulsion – for the rampant urban sprawl and technological overload that characterize everyday city life. Their detailed drawings portray realistic urban panoramas, which on closer inspection often reveal absurd scenarios. In one, for example, elderly Chinese women, armed only with dim-sum, stave off an aerial attack on San Francisco’s Chinatown, while in another, marauding day-glo bunnies take on Manhattan. According to Dan, the pair’s work portrays their “unease with and love of the modern world.”
Koznydan’s other work includes album covers for Weezer, John Mayer, Daedelus, Lyrics Born, and the Postal Service, as well as magazine illustrations for Colors, Tokion, Giant Robot, XLR8R, among others. They’ve also completed commercial projects for RES Fest, Electronic Arts, Nike, Wieden+Kennedy and Idn, and they’ve produced an array of products featuring their artwork including posters, books (their first, Urban Myths, was recently published by Giant Robot) and t-shirts. The couple has exhibited work in galleries in Los Angeles, Houston, Toronto, and London.
