by . October 4th, 2012

What would it look like, if the characters of famous paintings can walk, talk and possibly leave their canvas just like the paintings in Hogwarts? It may be impossible to see these famous paintings to walk and talk but Bence Hadju made it possible for the characters to leave their canvases.

Bence Hajdu is a fine-art student from Hungary and his re-interpretation of classical paintings devoid of human activity reveals a tranquil and eerie atmosphere exposing the intimate details of architecture and perspective to the viewer’s scrutiny.
