Artists mash up Japanese and California culture

Hosted by

Kozyndan is a husband and wife artist duo. She’s Kozy. He’s Dan. Their work uses visual puns to celebrate and poke fun at California culture. Like their painting of P22, the Griffith Park mountain lion, eating a koala from the Los Angeles Zoo. We look at Kozydan’s new show “The Golden State” at the Gregorio Escalante gallery. Escalante died unexpectedly last week. We remember him as one of the founders of the lowbrow art movement in Southern California -- a movement influenced by punk, tattoos and graffiti.
