Artist Feature - Michael Hussar

Born in 1964 in Southern California, Michael Hussar is an american oil painter who works in a style reminiscent of the work of the old masters, with the talent to go with it.

Self Portrait, Oil on Canvas, 2001

Trained at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, he taught portraiture for almost 10 years at his alma mater some time following his graduation. He possess a great mastery of alla prima portraiture, but still, his best work lies in the grandiose, opulent canvases, in which he depicts in a voyeuristic approach a grotesque menagerie of freaks and libertines.
