Browse through the amazing works of Josh Audiss, Omaha’s own local artist and submerge yourself in the beautiful stories he tells with his art.
Josh Audiss is a visual artist rooted in Omaha Nebraska. His drawings and paintings are largely inspired by the myriad of manifestations in the natural world. He also derives influence from Art Nouveau, Late1800’s/early 1900’s storybook illustration, traditional religious art of the east and west, nature illustration, and medieval alchemical and mystical motifs.
Though creating primarily for the simple sake of beauty and enjoyment, Josh at times wields his skill to convey depths of meaning through visual allegorical story telling. His biomorphic stylings lovingly honor the overall grace of the organic realm while paying homage to the ornamental relics of a bygone era.
Josh explains where his inspiration come from and what influences his art:
Daily observation and experience, the vistas and details of nature, imagery from tarot and alchemical motifs, and decorative art from Islamic tile design to motifs of Art Nouveau and Art Deco. I am frequently inspired by the father of Art Nouveau, Alphonse Mucha; golden age of illustration masters, Arthur Rackham and Edmond Dulac; and fantasy artist Frank Frazetta. There are three artists that have “Ernst” in their name, all of which I really love: Ernst Fuchs, Max Ernst, and Ernst Haeckel. There’s a ton of amazing art out there, but the painting I look at more than any other is Hieronymus Bosch’s “The Garden of Earthly Delights”. It is endlessly strange, fascinating, and inspiring.”
