New brush, old style

The Mercury - - WORLD -

BU­DAPEST: A Hun­gar­ian artist has a new ex­hi­bi­tion de­pict­ing po­lit­i­cal lead­ers in the style of iconic paint­ings. Béla Máriás, or drMáriás, has been paint­ing politi­cians for about a decade, and de­fines it as “so­cial surgery”.

His lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion in Bu­dapest fea­tures a paint­ing called The Sa­cred Fam­ily in Pi­casso’s Stu­dio,

which re­sem­bles Pablo Pi­casso’s Les

De­moi­selles d’Avi­gnon.
