Standard Vision: Are you inspired by any particular time periods in history?
Vasya Kolotusha: I really love Medieval Europe. When I have a chance I always draw some armor, gauntlets, daggers etc. I have a plenty of medieval helmets illustrated in different styles.
SV: Which projects make you the happiest to be working on?
Vasya: Probably it will be any project where I can use my ‘iridescent’ style.
SV: I read you majored in architecture. What made you pursue art and illustration instead?
Vasya: When I planned to enter university, architecture seemed like a great thing to study. But in the process of education I realized that architecture is 90% math and other 10% is designing cool things, as I was only interested in creative side of the work I thought it would be reasonable to switch to art and illustration.
SV: What are some pieces you are most proud of?
Vasya:I love all of my works in some way, sometimes I found pieces created 3-4 years ago and they feel really ‘primitive’ and childish-like but I still love them. At this point I can say I’m proud of my iridescent technique/style, to me it is like a new tool, which I have fun playing with.
SV: Where would you love to see your art displayed one day?
Vasya: I don’t know, Kanye’s house maybe? haha
