Meet Street Art Pioneer Dan Witz

(Video Link)

The name Dan Witz may be unknown to those who think street art begins and ends with Banksy and Shepard Fairey, but his outlaw artworks paved the way for the fame enjoyed by many today, fame which has eluded Dan because he's in it for the art, not the notariety.

Dan started his street art career in the late 70s with little painted birds and cleverly rendered slogans. He then moved on to creating unique installations that look like people stuck behind grating, and nowadays he's part of the gallery scene, creating amazingly detailed paintings of mosh pits.

Animal New York created this brief yet highly informative mini-doc about Dan Witz, which is a must see for street art fans and those who wonder how it all began.
