Artasura by Moga Alexandru

Artasura by Moga Alexandru

Artasura, is a concept series that started back in 2012 with the picture Roots.

Back then I had an incipient idea of raw primitive imagery that would depict humans in all sorts of nature landscapes, but it was never explored enough. In 2018 the inspiration struck, everything connected and a series of shots started to slowly emerge and take shape and color.

The gods always had a powerful grip and exerted a great fascination on humankind…and you can find all sorts of gods throughout mythology, with both good and bad qualities.

The Devi series is strongly inspired by the Hindu mythology. With this series I tried to capture different manifestations of the divine, the all protective, nurturing side, the meditative, introspective side and the angry, revengeful side.I personally made all the accessories, since I wanted them to have a certain look and also took care of the body painting part.

Sagas are stories mostly about ancient Nordic and Germanic history. And in my next image, Saga, I tried to portray some of that feeling, a man on a journey an epic story, with many mysteries to discover and experiences to live. [Model: Doboi Serpente Ferencz]
