Purchase Zeni Geva Zen Guerrilla Black Manna 1996 San Francisco California Silkscreen Print by Frank Kozik Hand-Pulled on Fine Art Paper Limited Edition Pop Street Art Artwork.
1996 Signed by Kozik & Numbered Limited Edition of 650 Artwork Size 17.5x22.5 Silkscreen Print Band Gig Poster by Frank Kozik. October 13, 1996 Das Kilowatt in San Francisco, California
Capturing the raw energy and unbridled spirit of the 1990s San Francisco music scene, Frank Kozik’s silkscreen print for the Zeni Geva, Zen Guerrilla, and Black Manna gig on October 13, 1996, stands as a significant piece of pop and street art. Kozik, well-known for his contribution to the visual side of rock culture, has infused this piece with a compelling blend of political commentary and vivid imagery, hallmark traits of street art and his style. The limited edition print, measuring 17.5x22.5 inches, was meticulously hand-pulled on fine art paper, underscoring the artist's commitment to quality and the traditional methods of printmaking. With only 650 signed and numbered editions, this artwork is a treasure for collectors and enthusiasts. Its depiction of the Statue of Liberty, surrounded by figures wearing gas masks and holding flags, offers a subversive take on American iconography. The use of iconic symbols juxtaposed with elements that suggest upheaval reflects the era's punk and alternative rock ethos, resonating with themes of resistance and independence prevalent in the genres associated with the bands featured. The event, hosted at Das Kilowatt in San Francisco, California, is immortalized in Kozik’s signature style—where the text is as much a part of the art as the images. His choice of vibrant colors and bold lettering reflects the energy and intensity of the bands, making the poster a visual shout that echoes the music it advertises. This piece is more than promotional material; it's a snapshot of when street art began crossing into mainstream consciousness, blurring the lines between commercial art and political statements. Kozik’s work with this print serves not just to announce a concert but to stake a claim in the ongoing dialogue between art and society, where the streets become a canvas for messages that are as likely to provoke thought as they are to promote an event. In the world of street art, such pieces are vital—they challenge, they commemorate, and they often become a part of the history they depict.
