The new work by Mario Zoots, an artist based in Denver, Colorado, is full of surreal and modern elements. Unlike his previously featured series involving naughty pin-ups, these images are much more PG-13. All revolve around found images from the Internet, "mostly from the sexy people blog," according to the artist. Whether that includes awkward high school portraits or Egyptian statues, the digital and paper collages will capture people's attention.

Recently featured in Gestalten’s The Age of Collage: Contemporary Collage in Modern Art, the new work by Mario Zoots is one example of "how collage has become one the most vital forms of current visual expression," writes Beautiful Decay. So much can be relayed and interpreted through it.
