Vasya Kobelev / Monorave | RU
I was born in Ufa. At the university, I studied Engineering of optical communication, but after graduation, I started a designer’s career. I was doing branding, layouts, retouch, renders, etc.
In 2015 I finished with digital and realized that work with tactile materials and creating real objects was closer to me. Later I learned that it was called set design. At the same time, I started shooting to document my sets.
I often use my engineering skills when I need to do some computations, constructions or brazing.
When I shoot Still Life I try to use a variety of materials and techniques. I try to do all things truly to fix less on post-production. I like using irony and humor if appropriate.
I’m inspired by Escher, Olafur Eliasson, Physalia, Vallee Duhamel, Caravane.
