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.
