Reinhard Schmid is an award-winning professional artist for more than 30 years. His fantastic, surreal images are based on a general concept which he calls the Venusmachine. The combination of the sensuous female energy with the more technical male aspects, often depicted in some kind of machinery.
His work is whimsical, complex and mostly with a humorous or erotic touch. As a base for his digital art, he regularly uses his traditional paintings. These works are the result of Schmid's reinterpretation of classical glass painting techniques. His production has been displayed in many international exhibitions and projects, including "New York Art Expo" and "Art en Capital" at the Grand Palais in Paris.
