Dan Witz's amazing photo-realistic paintings feature mosh pits, liquor stores lit up on dark streets, hotel room interiors, and people staring at their cell phones. His images seem to reflect on the sense of isolation brought about by modern society.

If you like his street-scene-inspired works, you might also enjoy his books, The Birds of Manhattan and In Plain View.
