About Hayden Zezula

Artist, animator, and branding specialist Hayden Zezula, aka @Zolloc is unsettling the internet. Whether creating bizarre GIFs of displaced baby parts or a gyrating ball of pink legs, Zezula mixes captivating visuals with the uncomfortable. The NYC-based artist (using a solid pink square as his Facebook profile pic) shares eccentric animations with a morbidly curious social media fanbase, either on his popular Tumblr page, to his over 160K+ Instagram followers, or in videos viewed by millions. His artistic talent reaching far beyond the eerie, Zezula recently completed a stylish series for Yahoo Sports, and his growing client roster includes MTV, Calvin Klein, and HBO.
