kozyndan are the much loved collaborative art team based out of Los Angeles. Kozy left Japan to study art in California where she met Dan – the two have been together ever since, making countless trips back to Japan and all over the world.

They are most famous for their bunny filled wave inspired by Hokusai's Great Wave and their amazing panoramas of epic chaos and beauty. This fresh show promises to embrace the pair's love for the ocean with a series of intricate artworks that depict mysteries, surprises and enigmas unfolding from watery waves.

The works are about the artists’ own experiences in and about our oceans and reflect a great respect for the natural environments matched with casting a critical eye over our cultural disregard for the sensitivities of the marine world. While this body of works was conceived and produced way before the recent events in Japan, viewing the works in the aftermath make these images all the more poignant.

Outré Gallery and kozyndan will be donating part proceeds from the exhibition to help Japan.
