Dan Witz Donates “Dark Doings” to Do Just the Opposite

Dan Witz has been painting for just over 3 decades since moving from Chicago to New York to study, and he has both a healthy fine art career and has garnered a wide swath of respect for his work on the street. In the piece Dan donated to the auction, it is evident why.
A realist, Dan seeks ways to master space and light with his work – as a street artist over many years, Dan has toyed with the obvious parts of the urban environment that you normally stroll by unthinkingly, subverting normal expectation. Part of the “Dark Doings” series he began on the street last year, this piece snaps you out of your daily doze as you walk by it affixed to a steel door.
“Did I just see that?”
What lurks there on just the other side of the window is disturbing, and you may need to become involved.

Shepard Speaks to you on the Street, On Video, On Radio
Big Ups to Animal New York once again for this funny interview with Shepard Fairy on Houston Street a couple nights ago, where he addresses Guantanamo, Obama, campaign finance reform, and how the Banksy movie was marketed and is received.
Also you can catch some more cool “on the scene” pics from Becki Fuller on Street Spot!
And listen to Shepard Fairy’s interview on WNYC with Brian Lehrer yesterday.

Watch out kids – Shepard uses swear words in some of these answers.

NYC Subway Etiquette? – Unheard Of!

Thanks to a recently begun campaign, you may not have your fanny fondled by a creep. And you may not have to listen to “All My Single Ladies” ever again through somebodies cheap-butt earbuds.

Well, maybe that’s wishful thinking.

Hundreds of MTA impersonating posted flyers are appearing in the subway advocating basic etiquette that doesn’t seem to occur to everyone on the New York City subways. According to the creator: “I surveyed 100 people on their top pet-peeves (not service related) while riding the Subway. I narrowed the results down to the top ten most occurring issues and rewrote them as a sort of list of rules. I designed posters in the style of the Service Changes posters we see everyday and silkscreened about 40 of each (400 total)…” Read more at our source for good etiquette, ANIMAL NEW YORK (and thank them for it)
