Wilfred Kozub is an Edmonton visual artist who has been exhibiting his imaginative paintings since 1995. He is best known for his spirited works that are alive with colour and motion, sometimes involving multiple images of swirling swallows or frenzied magpies agitated by electronic activity in the air.
In addition to his visual art activities, Kozub pursues a parallel career as a songwriter and recording artist with Edmonton’s Wilfred & the Grown Men. Since 1984, Kozub has released nine albums of his engaging art-pop music on his own Zönik Records label. The sound of Wilfred N & the Grown Men is well known locally – the group’s youthful, melodic songs are frequently heard on radio stations such as CKUA, CJSR and CBC. Wilfred Kozub’s artwork and photography can be seen in the graphics on Wilfred N & the Grown Men cds and vinyl recordings.
