This month, Fotolia goes to Spain. On Tuesday, Septeber 10, users can download the work of image creator, Sergio Del Puerto, aka Serial Cut™, from Spain. The piece, “Faux Tiroirs” is inspired by the renaissance period’s “cabinets of curiosities” and is the perfect post modern example: an eclectic mix of old and new, combining human body parts like teeth and arms, mixed with everyday things, but historical science tools, tubes, An enigmatic, strange and wacky jumble that begs the viewer to lose him/her self in the winding mazes of the artist’s mind.
