Lazarides Gallery Presents: Dan Witz “Prisioners 2012-2013” (London, UK)

New York-based artist Dan Witz makes his solo debut with Lazarides at our Rathbone Place gallery with Prisoners 2012-2013, displaying paintings from both his Prisoner and Mosh Pit series.

Dan Witz has been at the forefront of artists working on the street since the late 1970s. Combining digital reproduction with the old master’s technique of illusionism, the artist’s lifelike figures appear as if from nowhere on signposts, walls, windows and manhole covers across the world. Painted and layered over digital photographs, each image is designed to surprise the viewer, taking them aback and from the expected into an alarming state of disbelief.
