When you see a painting by NYC-based artist, Dan Witz, its a scene of chaos and elation. Witz has become famous for both his Mosh Pit and Rave series of works, carefully photographed, reassembled and painted in original compositions that reimagine motion and crowd behavior.

His street art is the opposite. Yes, his paintings are about nuance, but his street art is about unseen surprises in the urban experiences. A hummingbird, a man hiding in a street gutter… these little touches that Witz brings to the street are about creativity for those who are carefully examining their place and space.

Dan Witz’s work is part of Beyond the Streets, on view in Los Angeles through August 26, 2018.

And Now... How To Paint a Bat with Marcel Dzama | Juxtapoz Magazine

And Now… How To Paint a Bat with Marcel Dzama | Juxtapoz Magazin…

Juxtapoz Magazine – Juxtapoz and If You Were Now previously shared a small tutorial by Marcel Dzama entitled, “How To Draw Bat.” Today, Dzama, the Calgary-born, Brooklyn based artist, now shares how to take that drawing and transform it to painting. Here is our summary: When we teamed up with If You Were Here Now, we knew Dzama was a perfect artist for a tutorial and art therapy session. His music choices and topics are always so specially produced, distinct with a certain aesthetic that can only be from the hand and mind of Dzama. Today, the Brooklyn-based artist will teach us how to paint a bat, a feature that shows up in his fine art work frequently. Bats are known to symbolize death and rebirth, often referred to as “Guardians of the Night.” In a moment in our global consciousness that has both extreme travesty and a need to understand our future growth, we are happy to share this video today.

How To Draw a Bat with Marcel Dzama | Juxtapoz Magazine

Juxtapoz Magazine – Marcel Dzama is a bit of a Renaissance man. He paints, draws, makes his own costumes, art directs videos and has created a visual universe that is uniquely his own. When we last spoke with Dzama in our February 2017 issue, we noted his work was a mixture of “surrealism, Dada, Duchamp, 1950s literature and punk rock, streams the consciousness of who we are and where we are going. He is the old soul with modernity at his fingertips.” When we teamed up with If You Were Here Now, we knew Dzama was a perfect artist for a tutorial and art therapy session.
