Máximo Tuja creates the strangest collages I have ever seen. The people-shaped things are huge and are featured at beaches, farms and forests. The pictures have sayings beneath them such as "one tride pony" and "hard to explain."

Máximo Tuja mixes the human form with clothing, nature, accessories, books, fire and everything in between. The collages are fascinating pieces of art, each one a little different from the other.

Implications - Mixing gory imagery with childish, cute pictorials has been proven to be a pleasing juxtaposition for many people. Companies who create print advertisements, product designs and marketing campaigns that find a balance between shocking imagery -- like these 'gargantuan decapitated drawings' -- and cutesy imagery will find they create visuals that are highly stimulating to consumers.
