Fun is what he has when setting these plastic actors up, and consistently bringing a smile to his fans when he posts them online. Check out the recent work of Wonderfactory Artist David Cubero, a compositing artist for movies and animation with his own video and visuals production company in Barcelona, Spain.
David collects all kinds of action figures, and started shooting pictures of them with his iPhone in order to create a library of action poses for reference when he draws his comic books. He soon realised that photography breathed life into his toys, and with some captioning, he could tell toy stories the way comic books do. David has had his toy photography exhibited in Paris, Spain, Shanghai and Singapore, published a book in limited-print, gave talks at Barcelona University, and had his own weekly column in a magazine. He was also featured as a photographer to watch, in the book ‘Impossible Photography’ published in October 2017. David’s influence in the toy photography community is recognised by several toy companies, which collaborate with him quite regularly.
