Guf 'EЩЕ' album cover artwork
Art-direction & photography: Anton Scut36 Volkov
After our first successful collaboration on '420' album cover Guf asked me to create the cover for his 4th solo studio album. This time he wanted the artwork to be done in minimalism style. He also requested the cover to be separated in to two parts by colors: upper mint and lower grey.
I tried different variants but once I noticed transparent Styrene Tubing kits for architectual model-building in the art supplies store I decided to use them for this project.
I used open fire to bend the tubes.
After dozens of attempts with different tubing sizes I finallly managed to learn how to bend the tubing without burning it.
My next step was to create the name of the artist out of tubing. So I started to make each letter separately.
It took a lot of time and patience but finally somehow I managed to bend the tubing the way all three letters were connected to each other and formed a whole piece.
After the name out of tubing was done I started looking for the proper background to shoot it: I started with color paper but finally decided to use something with a texture: so I chose CORDURA fabric for the background.
