Zach Bootz's work is a collage of ideas inspired from Instruction manuals, classical Greek architecture and basketball. These narratives mesh together to juxtapose the traditional and non traditional art styles in the form of graphic line drawings. Currently, Zach is primarily infatuated with Formula-1 racing, Dubai and trophies.
