Meet Rohan Hande aka the mastermind behind the Disney x KOOVS collages. The collection, which just dropped, is full of 90s nostalgia and childhood faves like Mickey and Minnie mouse. Rohan channeled this aesthetic into the visuals, and the results were dreamy. He’s been published in the likes of Grazia and Kneon Magazine, alongside creating an array of amazing projects. Here at KOOVS we love discovering new talent and giving you guys the inside scoop, find out more about this photographer and visual artist below…
HI ROHAN, YOU'VE WORKED ON AMAZING PROJECTS WITH BRANDS LIKE VOGUE, GQ AND NOW KOOVS. HOW DID YOU GET YOUR BIG BREAK AS A PHOTOGRAPHER AND VISUAL ARTIST?
Thank you so much for looking at my work. I really appreciate it. It's always a pleasure working with the publications and I was really happy when Koovs approached me to work on the collages, something I take a lot of pleasure doing. I really don't think I've made my way to the big break yet. But I do enjoy making my way towards creating a satisfying body of work.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR CREATIVE AESTHETIC?
All my work revolves around photography. I can't do much without having images to work with. So even when it's collages, the composition still has to make photographic sense.
WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOUR WORK?
Sometimes it's a song, people I meet. But more than work itself, what really inspires me is people making work all the time. It is a strong driving factor.
LEADING ON FROM THIS, DO YOU HAVE A SPECIFIC CREATIVE PROCESS THAT HELPS YOUR PRODUCTIVITY OR DOES IT DEPEND ON THE PROJECT?
How I work on the final pieces changes from project to project. Since each of them have a different concept. Though at the core of the process it honestly doesn't sway too much.
THIS COLLABORATION IS ALL ABOUT MICKEY AND MINNIE MOUSE, WHO'S YOUR FAVE DISNEY CHARACTER?
I think I'm going to go with Goofy on this one haha!
