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

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In Plain View - 30 years of Artworks Illegal and Otherwise is the first and long overdue monograph on the work of Dan Witz. New York artist Dan Witz has been doing street art since the late 1970s. In his enduring street art career, he has specialized in a smaller, more intimate kind of street art. For Witz, a sense of wonder and curiosity are key.

Strongly influenced by the changing cultural landscape of the New York City streets where he developed his craft, Witz has traveled the path from dark to light and back again. In the book, his wandering journey through the no-wave and DIY movements of New York's Lower Eastside of the 70's, the Reaganomics of the 80's to the flourishing of

graffiti art in the new millennium is beautifully illustrated in 250 color photographs and narrated through an interview with the Wooster Collective.

Synopsis:

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.
