Tonight I'm featuring an artist I recently became familiar with. As I've said before I love and appreciate all forms of art and the arts in general. Michael Hussar is an incredible although somewhat controversial artist with some powerful images that really stir emotions. After all, that's what art is suppose to do. For those of you who haven't heard of him, I give you Michael Hussar.
Driven by love, hate, sin, redemption and death, Michael Hussar's oil paintings present the viewer with a contextual maturity that is both confrontational and evocative. Hussar describes his work as "a voyeuristic snapshot of perceived humanity, complete with freaks and fakery; a gothic wonderland illuminating the gray area between truths and lies." Hussar's attachment to his paintings runs deep; each piece is a journal of sorts, allowing him to come face to face with his demons and exorcising them with each new stroke of the brush. Hussar's paintings are in the private collections of Warren Beatty, Francis Ford Coppolla and Leonardo Di Caprio.
