Dan Witz’s current trompe l’oeil street art is shockingly unnoticeable to most of the people that may pass by. Trompe l’oeil is an art technique using realistic imagery to create the illusion that the imagery is three dimensional.
I’m trying to exploit our collective tendency towards sleepwalking by inserting outrageous things right out there in plain view that are also practically invisible. My goal is to make obvious in your face art that 99% of the people who walk by won’t notice. Eventually when they stumble upon one or find out about it I’m hoping they’ll start wondering what else they’ve been missing.
