Conceptual Realism – Michael Hussar
Michael Hussar Beginnings
Hussar is another Southern California artist born in 1964. He studied at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California and went on to teach for almost ten years at an unnamed art school in Los Angeles.
Medium and Technique
Hussar paints oil on canvas or oil on panel. He often produces a pencil study long before committing anything to canvas. To get some idea of this process watch the second video below.
Once he has the basic ideas worked out he’ll begin painting in earnest with oil on canvas.
Shows and Showings
Hussar’s works have been displayed at La Luz de Jesus and Copro-Nason (now Copro) Galleries. One of his works was even featured in an episode of L.A. Ink.
