Dan Witz: In Plain View Dan Witz: In Plain ViewDan Witz: In Plain View � 30 Years of Artwork Illegal
and Otherwise is the first and long overdue monograph
on the work of Dan Witz. A benefit of having one of the most sustained careers in street art, if such a thing exists, is the degree of growth, freedom and experimentation that such an extended period allows. Another advantage would be the influence of the aesthetic environs within the changing cultural landscape, especially if you happen to work in New York City.
From the no-wave and DIY movements of New York's Lower East Side of the 70's, through the Reaganomics of the 80's to the flourishing of graffiti art in the new millennium. Whether stickers or paste-up silk-screened posters, conceptual pranks and interventions, or beautiful tromp l'oeil paintings, the medium is inspired as much by the nature and subject of his art as by the mutating urban conditions in which the piece is executed.

Besides obvious craftsmanship, the artwork of Dan Witz evinces a rigorous conceptual framework. This framework not only opens up a dialogue with graffiti and street art which dominate the urban environment, but also allows for the retention of clear and open lines with the canon of art history.

Herakut The Perfect Merge Book Herakut The Perfect Merge BookThe unique strength and startling tension of a herakut piece, whether it is painted on a wall or a canvas, derives from their bold concept of mixing two extremely contrasting artistic styles: Akut's top level spray paint photorealism and Hera's rough but imaginative illustrations with spray paint and pencil.
This book depicts the complex process of these two graffiti loving and street art affiliated artist melting down their individual skills for the sake of storytelling. It compiles the vast body of Herakut work from its beginning in 2004 to the latest and most beautiful outcome of this exceptional symbiosis.
