Wunderkammern Gallery Presents: Dan Witz "Public and Confidential" (Rome, Italy)


Public and Confidential

Wunderkammern is proud to launch the international project Public & Confidential, starting with the exhibition by American artist Dan Witz.

Influenced by Punk culture, Dan Witz began his career in 1979 and quickly became one of the major pioneers of Street Art. Challenging the more traditional canons of the art world, Witz chose to focus on urban art, creating installations on the streets of various international cities and succeeding at expressing his ideas freely and directly. Born in Chicago in 1957, Witz boasts extensive formal training that includes studying the Fine Arts as well as Design. His artistic commitment earned him numerous scholarships and prizes, as well as special recognitions from institutions such as the New York Foundation for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts, with important exhibitions in the foremost galleries around the world. At the beginning of his career the artist concentrated on hyperrealism, which he explored through painting. His method later evolved towards street installations, which had to be realized in a very short amount of time. As a result, Witz often works with digital images which he later paints over because, as even the artists notes, with painting he’s able to obtain certain lighting contrasts that accent the realistic appearance of the figures depicted.
