Dan Witz is one of the most prolific artists working on the streets of New York City today. Witz, consistently active since the late 1970s, is considered one of the pioneers of the street art movement. Apart from street art, Dan Witz also does realistic paintings involving night scenes and low-light portraits. I found his Mosh Pits series particularly curious because it was realistic and surreal at the same time.
Witz was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1957. He was educated at Cooper Union and Rhode Island School of Design. Dan Witz paintings have been shown in galleries worldwide; including: Jonathan LeVine Gallery, in Chelsea, New York; Stolen Space Gallery, London, England; Carmichael Gallery, Los Angeles, CA; Addict Galley, Paris, France; White Walls, San Francisco, and DFN Gallery New York. He lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
