Legendary Brooklyn, NY based street artist Dan Witz is preparing to shake things up as he opens simultaneous solo shows this weekend in NYC and the UK. We’ve been lucky enough to view both shows already and he’s certainly taken things up another notch with this show. His use of lighting and shadows… so many times you’d swear it was a photograph before even considering it was a painting. Both shows are just stunning and if anyone is lucky enough to be in either metropolis this weekend, do not miss your chance to view his works in person.

Dan Witz 1st book ‘Dan Witz In Plain View. 30 Years of Artworks Illegal and Otherwise’ Will be be published by Gingko Press December ’08. So can’t wait for that!
