Dan Witz is a street artist based in New York, USA, and is known for his paintings that are eerily realistic. One of his collections includes portraits of everyday people staring into their mobile phones, almost hypnotized by what they’re seeing on the screen.

Witz has captured the essence perfectly, including the screen lighting illuminating on the faces of the users. Take a look at some of the paintings below.
