Alois Reiss / Agura Nata
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
Born in 1963 in Regensburg (Bavaria, Germany), I worked as a machine locksmith and later as a technical draftsman in mechanical engineering.
Starting in 1998, I began to combine microscope images of minerals with symbols of the time and create digital compositions.
In 2000, my first exhibition "Art from Stone and Time"
2003 I started to work as a freelance artist. I now dealt with composings of historical places such as museums, castles and their objects as well as history over time.
In 2012 I discovered the abstract acrylic painting I showed in some exhibitions.
In the search for new possibilities to express my imagination, I came across the 3D software "Blender 3D", 2016 in "Mandelbulb 3D" and "Terragen". Influenced by my hobby astronomy and the science of the fractal, individual works with surrelem and abstract character have developed since then, partly also influenced by elements from the mechanical engineering.
In 2017 I wrote a little story about the "Mask of the Agura Nata" and now use it as an artist name. The story is about the young king Agura in "Yurkanti", which is completely different from our world we know. There are no trees or flowers, but for this they grow fractals or float with their roots through the air around in suitable places with the ground to claws. The fractals are loaded there and influence their environment and the atmosphere of the country. For this story also some special surreal works were created.
Some of my exhibitions: Castle Spindlhof, Castle Wiesent, Castle Stefling, Retirement Residence Thurn & Taxis, Historical Museum Regensburg, Brückturmmuseum Regensburg
My programs I work with are: Photoshop CS 3, Terragen 4, Blender 2.78, DAZ, Bryce 7 pro, Vue 2016 Esprit for Artists, Makehuman, Mandelbulb 3D, Mandelbulber, Fragmentarium
About three weeks ago I got the request from the "THE HORROR ZINE" for an article about my surreal works in their magazine. Now he has appeared and I was very happy:
