Reinhard Schmid is an established German artist with more than 30 years of experience in traditional and 25 years in digital art. Over the last 30 years, Reinhard Schmid refined the use of pencil
and watercolor on the reverse side of glass. By combining it with the techniques of the old masters he developed his very own distinct style. He takes the fascinating old "sous verre" technique
to the next level and is the only known painter today to master it to this degree.
In the early 1990s Schmid worked with Jaro Art Galleries on Madison Avenue, New York, which also exhibited his art at the New York Art Expo. From 1991 to 2001 he maintained a residence in Chicago, IL.
Reinhard Schmid’s works can be found in both private collections and galleries in Europe, the United States and Japan. Since 1990 he operates his own gallery. In recent years he was accepted by several groups of first-rate painters, and he participated in numerous projects throughout Europe, mainly with large scale oil paintings done in a refined old masters technique.
In 2018 he started his journey into crypto art as one of the very first artists on Makersplace. Soon after that he was accepted by the all the premier marketplaces, including Superrare, Known Origin and AsyncArt. In 2020 he was admitted into the prestigious Art x Whale project. His works can be found in some of the most prolific collections in the NFT space.
