hAJDU bENCE a Hungarian Fine Arts student with a focus in new-media has created a series of abandoned paintings. A collection of re-interpreted famous paintings without their original characters.

Sandro Botticelli 'Annunciation', 1489-1490

Leonardo da Vinci  'The Last Supper'  1495-1498

Jacques-Louis David 'Oath of the Horatii'  1784

 Claude Lorrain 'Seaport with the Embarkation of St. Ursula'  1641


“I am a student at the university of fine arts, hungary. at one of the descriptive geometry classes we had a task to find and draw theperspective and horizon lines of renaissance and other pictures with significant perspective space. I thought it is not that interesting to just draw lines, so I decided to erase all the characters from them and examine how the painter really created the perspective spaceand how it actually looks.I saw this could be something exciting and continued thinking and working on it. after a while I found myself interested in the new atmosphere and the new thoughts the retouched pieces generated without their main subjects.”
