Week Six - Michael Hussar

I came across this artist after searching the site http://www.conceptart.org (which is very useful if you are interested in concept art). If you look at Hussars other works of art it's apparent he enjoys creating disturbing and obscene illustrations/paintings. Most of his art centers around a nightmarish character who is deformed or mutilated in some way. In the piece I chose the character is a fat and pale looking clown sucking on a lollipop with huge swollen lips. But the color and texture of the candy imitates blood. This is actually one of his less creepy works. A lot of the other pieces involve nudity or mutilated people with bees covering them. To see more of his art you can visit his website here: http://www.michaelhussar.biz/pages/alla_prima_pg.html

  1. this is so awesome. I'm loving the gore. Also clowns are always a great subject for anything creepy.

  2. Man deformed and fat subjects, sounds like this artist was made for me. The colors and shading is great.

  4. I'm amazed on how real the lollypop looks because its texture is well rendered. Overall, I am creeped out by this piece.

  6. I love how the sucker simulates blood. I like how this image is creepy even though the clown is not intentionally trying to be. The huge lips is also a nice touch
