Dan Witz Paints Skinheads, Slam Dancing, Erotica

Because you can’t get your fill of angry white men from all the Donald Trump rallies this spring, painter and Street Artist Dan Witz is presenting Mosh Pits, Raves and One Small Orgy at Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York. The paintings further capture the freneticism of clan-like gatherings of nearly entirely caucasian youth in the “hardcore” subcultures of punk and alternative music.

Rebellious, provocative, warm, sensual, rhythmic, chaotic and violent dancing as depicted in these hormone-infused scenes are easily as erotic as the de-clad coitus-seeking scene makers in the Bosch-Bruegelian mass of bodies. Ecstacy abounds often and which view is more orgiastic depends entirely on you.

One question among many; if this is a small orgy, how many participants are in a large one?
