Josef Kozak Drawing

I just acquired this untitled drawing by Josef Kozak from the Leslie/Lohman Gay Art Foundation. Outsider artist Kozak creates detailed mythological fantasias often weaving elements from 17th century and Native American images and motifs. Usually sexually explicit, his work is technically at a high level, and incorporates a winking humor into a strongly narrative expression.

This piece was featured in a recent edition of "The Archive," the journal of the Leslie/Lohman Gay Art Foundation, and was made available to me by Charles Leslie.

An interview with Kozak appeared in the Spring/Summer, 1999 edition of "The Archive".

How can I contact Josef Kozak? I'm very interested in buying more art by him. If you see my blog, I bought a sketch at Saturday Nightmares horror convention and I lost his contact info. said...
