待在家裡悶壞了嗎?在一成不變的生活裡,難免「看方是方、看圓是圓」,一切都以我們習以為常的方式存在著。如果生活難以改變,不如改變自己?面對固定形態的日常生活器具、食品和其他小物,來看看俄羅斯視覺藝術家Helga Stentzel如何「玩」出火花。

Helga總是能捕捉到身邊小物有趣的一面,配合固有的形狀和色澤,創造出意想不到的一面。這一隻正在用櫻桃舉重的小棕熊,其實是一顆胡桃,搭配上逗趣的表情,十分地生動可愛。

It’s been a year since I posted this image, but it still gives me goosebumps as I remember the Eureka moment behind it very clearly. That week’s hashtag project was #whpcolorstudy, and i wasn’t that into colour back then. I liked little concepts executed in soft shades of grey, and anything bolder seemed like a serious threat to the integrity of my grid 🤣 I experimented with different kernel arrangements on my plate (you can catch one on my stories), but it is only when I found a sheet of yellow cardboard in the drawer that everything fell into place💫 And even though I didn’t get featured by Instagram that week, I learnt a lot about the power of colour and how important it is to push yourself just a little bit more 💨 And what are your preferred working style? Do you like to have everything mapped out in advance or do you create as you go? #sorrynowhpthisweek

Here's what my perfect weekend looks like: a slice of Russian honey cake plus 2-3 hours for styling and shooting, finished off with obligatory consumption of the abovementioned cake🍽 and a shot of espresso ☕️ And what's yours? #whpfoodforthought . . Рецепт моего идеального воскресенья: кусок медовика, два-три часа проведенные за стайлингом и съемкой, ну и конечно поедание вышеописанного медовика 😋 за чашечкой эспрессо под неторопливое пощелкивание мышкой. А у вас какой рецепт? #идеальныйдень

啟動創意的第一步,就是跳出框架,擺脫僵化的固有思維。Helga 聯想了物件的相似性,當兩個類別截然不同的小物組合在一起,便營造了另個充滿故事性的畫面。

把自己的腳趾頭想像成在沙灘享受太陽浴的女生,幾筆簡單的線條就能讓一個平凡無奇的視角變得更有意思。這是Helga為了38日婦女節所創作的作品,表現了女性享受做自己,自由而快樂的精神。

Helga Stentzel是出生於英國倫敦的俄羅斯視覺藝術家,樂於發現生活美好細節的她,曾從事多種媒體工作,其中包括插畫、攝影、視頻和定格動畫。擔任廣告行業的藝術總監的經驗,使她具備充分的品牌管理、營銷和商業知識。

Many artists argue that with a well-curated Instagram account you don't really need a personal website anymore 📱✅ And I agree – but just as long as you show most of your projects on the app and are happy with its chronological grid. Since I work with clients from different industries, it is very important to me to be able to split my visuals into relevant categories: food art, DIY, conceptual photography and so on. That's why a link to my Instagram page doesn't always do the job when I need to highlight a particular category. In the past I used to copy and paste links to individual projects and send them to clients as a long list of underlined blue text 💤 You can imagine how much I hated this repetitive, boring and time-consuming process! And now imagine my joy being able to build a @Wix website with a gallery, a store and an Instagram plug-in (very important, right?). As an artist, I started with a blank canvas. But if you aren't, you'd be amazed by the selection of beautiful, clean templates to choose from! All @Wix websites are well-designed, easy to navigate, but most importantly, they are also super-easy to update and edit. No coding skills required – which is a relief for someone with a peaboard⌨😅 Have a look at what I've created and let me know what you think! There’s a lot of new visuals, check them out! #linkinbio #sponsored

然而,這專業的一面並不使Helga變得沉悶或妨礙她發現生活的趣味,反而使她擁有更多的技能去支持自己完成想做的事情。她利用自己相關背景與強項去經營自己的社交媒體帳戶。通過發布自己所喜歡且讓他人喜歡的作品,獲得了關注與盈利。

美國科學家Nicholas Negroponte曾提及:「創造力來源於不同事物的意外組合。」持續學習以獲得知識,勇於嘗試以運用知識,這兩者是打開生活新視窗的關鍵。若想要擺脫渾渾噩噩的無聊日子,可以朝這一方向著手嘗試。
