“Mosh Pits”, paintings by Dan Witz.
The 5th one is my favourite.
Is that Matt le Blanc in the last one?
WHAT?! looks more like an good photoshoped photo, than a good painted painting. good work!
just wow. badass.

I love the lighting…
Wo these are so sick!
Just noticed the face of the girl in the third painting who’s squinting her eyes is the same model in the top left hand corner of the last one.
Oh yeah! And the guy to the right of her with the red cap is in both pieces too. Also, in the second one… I think he used the same model for several of the girls?
i like how he doesn’t include any of the actual concert scenes, it makes the paintings much more human and visceral.
Just wow, just amazing, just wow
wow… these have detail!!
Oh my buddha!!! they are very wonderful!!
He appears to print a photo onto canvas and then paint on top of it. A technique that is becoming more and more common and is often misinterpreted as actual talent (I was very dissappointed to discover that Helnwein does this too, at least Richter has the decency to project the photos onto canvas and painstakingly draw them out!).
He mentions it in this interview on his website:
