New Dan Witz On the Street, If You’re Looking

Don’t make love by the garden gate – Love is blind but the neighbors ain’t!

Looks like Street Artist Dan Witz has installed a large full length street version of “Hoodys Kissing” in this bricked alcove, but who will see it?  The artist has mastered the art of camouflage, plainly laying out his work where it can be seen with the bare eye.

Standing nearby and watching passersby for a few minutes gives ample evidence that we can be blind to the things right in front of us – and in a city that is full of loud noises, music, polluting cars, sidewalk vendors, and sexy summer fashions parading at you from all directions, can you blame us? Plus, I think that traffic attendant is putting a ticket on my windshield! “Wait! Sir! I’m just running in this drug store to get my Grandma some Doan’s pill for her knees! Please don’t give me a ticket, I was only in there for 2 minutes! Crap!”
