Dan Witz is a NYC based street artist who, amongst other things pastes art stickers on buildings around Brooklyn.
About the his new series Ugly New Buildings he says:
In the past few years much of my neighborhood in Brooklyn has been torn down to make way for luxury housing. For better or worse it's a whole new street-scape out here. Personally, I can't say I like the new modern architecture very much, it's sterile and alienating and so arrogantly disconnected with its surroundings sometimes it seems like giant alien space ships have landed. But let's face it, bemoaning gentrification in New York City is futile, it's like complaining about the noise or other unstoppable forces of urban nature.
So for this summer's piece I tried to make the best of it. These are photo-based, heavily re-painted stickers, mounted on plastic and glued to the walls of the Ugly New Buildings. In May I put up around 30 and about half are still there.
