German artist and illustrator Mario Wagner’s large scale paper collage and acrylic on canvas works derive from familiar Modernist techniques – Dadaist collage and photo montage. Despite their ‘analog’ processes, utilizing old magazines, scissor, glue and acrylic, Wagner’s unique, inchoate assemblages are erratic and surprising. Clustered bodies float within vintage settings split by lightning bolts. Salaciously grinning mouths hint at scandal and subplot as eyeless faces drip retro glamour. Wagner’s work has been shown in numerous international exhibitions and his artworks have been commissioned by Playboy, Vanity Fair, Esquire, and The New York Times Magazine.
