This is not the first time we feature Dan Witz, but he is one of those artists we like keeping track of as well as bringing you new pieces of his astonishing work every now and then. We are simply in love with this man. Born in 1957, Dan Witz is a Brooklyn, NY based street artist and realist painter. He grew up in Chicago and in 1981 (when we were still in diapers), he graduated from Cooper Union, on New York City’s Lower East Side. Witz, consistently active since the late 1970s, is one of the pioneers of the street art movement and his paintings have been shown in galleries throughout the US and Europe. In June 2010 a monograph, “Dan Witz. In Plain View. 30 Years of Artworks Illegal and Otherwise”, was published by Ginkgo press.
Jack Addis is a young artist who lives and works in Bristol, UK. He just graduated the other year from Bath School of Art and Design but he has already made a name for himself in the artworld. His portraits are broken, manipulated, glitched and then collaged back together to create a conflict of identity. An exciting visual strategy, that also explores our current socio-political landscape.
