Brooklyn Street Art Posted on April 7, 2014 “After photographing in the mosh pits for awhile I began to get familiar with patterns in the music. Eventually it got to the point where I could sense the moment coming when things would really cut loose and go berserk,” says painter Dan Witz about his process and method for catching the moment when the roiling mass of hardcore music fans hit the perfect state of frenzy. “NY Hardcore Paintings”, opening this past Saturday night and on view currently at The Jonathan Levine gallery in Chelsea, presents Witz with his new body of convulsing bodies and to say they are a revelation is only part of the story. When we saw his first mosh pit paintings a few years ago we were struck by the raw thrilling chaotic energy and calculated abandon in them – and reminded of many such nights in the 80s and 90s in lower Manhattan when we also joined in the fray.

80+ Beautiful Street Crimes done by BANKSY Asked about his technique, Banksy said: “I use whatever it takes.

We also start quite early because we want the artists to produce pieces especially for Art Brussels. In our booth, there will be only one piece that has been shown before, and only because it’s a very important and historic one. How big is your Art Brussels booth?
