Welcome to D. Uhr Aviation
The guy behind D.Uhr Aviation Art
Just a few words
Was born in 1968, in Rio de Janeiro.
Has done many illustrations for magazines such as Força Aérea (Brazil), Aviation History (USA), Ian Allan and Crècy Publishing (UK), Fluid (Poland) and for the Luft46 website too. Also designed box covers for plastic kits companies such as High Plane (Australia), Hobby Boss, Trumpeter and AniGrand (China), Valom (Czech Republic) and Unicraft (Ucrania), among others.
Wrote a book with Claudio Lamas, titled Luftwaffe Confidencial – Entirely sold out in 2010.
Opened his own design studio, Eletronicmedia (www.eletronicmedia.com.br) in 2002. Later created a division devoted entirely to aviation art – D.Uhr Aviation Art (www.duhraviationart.com).
His aviation art was displayed in an individual exhibition called “Impressions of a dream”, initially in Rio de Janeiro in 2008 and then travelled to Blumenau, where it stayed for three months, and Petropolis.

I know Daniel Uhr since he was a graphic design student at UniverCidade, in the early 1990’s.
I witnessed his evolution from “analog” illustrator to a fully “digital” aviation artist and since then he developed a very original illustration style that clearly demonstrates that a digital illustration is neither a photograph, nor a painting, but instead a completely new form of visual language.
Daniel is also a very competent and creative graphic designer, which means that he has full control of all design elements of a book project, something very rarely seen in contemporary aviation literature.
So, I am very lucky in having him as my partner!

D.UHR Aviation Art provide us excellent artworks for the illustration on our model kits products.
Always three words, “Looks so great!”
Daniel Uhr is a talented aviation with an eye for detail and dynamic compositions.
We have engaged his services to produce the box art for our High Planes range of scale model kits and the quality of his worked has frequently exceeded expectations.
We consider Daniel one of the core High Planes team and he makes an enormous contribution to our brand. He can both work from 3D CAD models, which makes creating accurate art easier, or using traditional illustration techniques where no 3D exists.
A great communicator, inspiring artist and original thinker!
