I was just talking to someone the other day about how in the ’90s, people moshed at every show, no matter what kind of music it was, but these days people don’t do that anymore. These hyper-realistic paintings by Dan Witz have a weird retro feel to them, sort of like Social Realist murals glorifying the heroism of the common man, and the subject matter — crowds at nightclubs mingling, masses of people at a rock show moshing, hundreds of rushing commuters — make them odes of a sort to Generation X.
