Michael Hussar is an American painter from Southern California. He was trained at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA.


Michael Hussar creates original oil paintings. Trained by painters Richard Bunkall, Dwight Harmon, and Judy Crook; and draftsmen Harry Carmean and Burne Hogarth. Taught Portraiture-Head Painting for almost 10 years at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA and continues to teach portrait painting workshops in the United States and Europe. He currently lives in Rome, Italy.


In 2008 Hussar's painting, Hans Memling was featured in the group show In the Land of Retinal Delights: The Juxtapoz Factor that took place at the Laguna Art Museum from June 22 - October 5, 2008.

Hussar's oil paintings and drawings are very provocative and often somewhat objectionable because they are intensely realistic.

Hussar paints in the old-master style. His clients include Kat Von D and Madonna.
