Bence Hajdu: The Last Supper

abandoned-paintings-bence-hajdu-1

Bence Hajdu’s Classical paintings empty of people first started as an exercise at his art school in Hungry, drawing lines to examine the perspective in renaissance paintings. Then Hajdu started to find that a better way to analyse how the space in the  paintings was created was to remove the people thus understanding in another way how the space operates. Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper, the original is a mural in the refectory of the Convent of Santa Maria della Grazie. One of the particularities of this painting is that Usually when it is discussed the conversation is around the people, where they’re placed, there hands or their feet. Yet without these people the only occupant of the space is their table, yet for me it is a far more poignant expression of this famous meal.abandoned-paintings-bence-hajdu-2
