A Little More About Us

Kosmask is owned by Kosmas and Jason, who have been friends for 40 years. The pair founded Kosmask to stimulate the arts and to help artists.  They wanted to bring a new medium to the art world to give more artists the ability to be seen and give more people the opportunity to experience the joy of sculpture.

A blank Kosmask is like a blank canvas, it can become anything.  It is constructed to be stable, durable and paintable with an unlimited number of techniques.  It is permanent and will last for many generations.
