Frank Kozik was born in 1962 in Madrid, Spain.
His father was an American serviceman and his mother a young Spanish woman. He spent his childhood in Spain. This experience of growing up under the fascist dictator Franco would later serve as a major influence throughout his work.
Often credited with single handedly reviving the lost art of the concert poster, his creative career rose largely out of his enthusiasm for Austin’s growing underground punk rock scene in the early eighties. In 1981, he began designing and posting black and white flyers for friends’ bands on telephone poles. His reputation quickly grew as an artist whose work was graphically compelling and culturally gripping.
as you can tell in this metal poster from the 90’s he used bold lines and contrasting colours. The Text element and the bold illustration, spaced on the diagonal opposites, it creates a pleasing balance. the relevance to the music and the poster I think links very well being very vulgar nature and some-what aggressive.
Slayer’s Music being the same.
in my opinion I feel he created wonderful music graphics that matches the types of music they are for.
