Frank Kozik – Kidrobot’s Chief Creative Officer – passes away
Frank Kozik – Kidrobot’s Chief Creative Officer and creator of the Labbit art toy character – passed away unexpectedly on May 6th.
Kozik had been leading Kidrobot’s strategic creative vision and product development since 2018.
He designed over 500 different limited-edition figures, pioneering the art toy movement and providing a launchpad for hundreds of artists through Kidrobot and across the world.
“Words escape how we felt about Frank,” said Joel Weinshanker, CEO of Kidrobot’s parent company Ad Populum.
“Living the American immigrant’s dream, I will always remember Frank’s childlike wonder and enthusiasm when it came to creation. Frank saw art wherever he went and was always trying to add another layer to everything. He will be greatly missed, and I hope he realized how much he was loved and adored by those who had the pleasure of knowing him. Until next we meet my friend.”
