Dan Witz: In Plain View: 30 Years of Artworks Illegal and Otherwise

December 2011

The gamut of Dan Witz's output over the past thirty years is truly amazing. Containing the raw power and range of the work in a book is a nearly impossible task as the artist's work rails against constraints conceptual or practical. This being said, his growth as an artist is a joy to observe and this long overdue monograph will hopefully bring his work to the fore. Witz is a deeply cerebral artist, yet suspicious of overly intellectual or inaccessible art. These contradictory tendencies give him his edge, whether in the studio or the streets. Dan Witz has enjoyed one of the most sustained and influential careers in street art and the output of his studio practice is equally stunning and dynamic, an integral part of his bi-lobal method.
