Dan Witz, who needs to become much better known in the UK by the way, has started on a new project and it is as great as ever. Here are a few images from “Dark Doings“:
Without a doubt, these street pieces are impressive, but what about Witz’ work in the gallery. Here is a piece from the current group show at StolenSpace Gallery:
