“It was Dan Witz who, back in 2003, first showed us how powerful street art could be. Each summer Dan’s projects take street art to new levels by adding elements of “surprise and delight” into the city landscape. For us, Dan Witz is the consummate street artist. He’s provocative.  He’s dedicated.  And most of all – He has absolutely wicked skills.”
– Marc and Sara Schiller – ?Wooster Collective

About Dan Witz:
Dan Witz is one of the most prolific artists working on the streets of New York City today. With a career that dates back to the 1970s, he continues through each project to refine his technique and style, yet never loses sight of his original aesthetic and ideological goals. Acknowledged as one of the most important voices in the history of the movement by critics and peers alike, he both defines and challenges what it means to be a street artist.

Witz was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1957. He was educated at Cooper Union and Rhode Island School of Design. Recent solo exhibitions include New Works, Addict Gallery, Paris, France (2009), New Street Works, Sid Lee Collective, Amsterdam, The Netherlands (2009), Night Paintings, Stolenspace, London, England (2009), and In Plain View, DFN Gallery, New York, USA (2008). He lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
