jános huszti


Old photos from days gone by, transformed into lovely oil paintings. This is the gorgeous portrait work of Hungarian artist János Huszti. The interesting thing about all of the images… the original photos were taken in Hungarian jails. True story. From the female police officers in blue, to jailhouse employees poring over documents, to the guilty woman signing her final verdict. I went from thinking they were just beautifully painted portraits of random vintage images to wanting the full inside CSI-esque scoop on each piece… what did that pretty lady do!?
