Mind On His Money, And Money in His Art

Hey everyone, I found these slide show on Yahoo that highlights a very unique artist. I’ve seen artwork using money before however these pieces by Mark Wagner seem to stand apart. His pieces feel really unique to me because the money isn’t really the focus, if that makes any cents (cheesy, but I had to). The designs are just so intricate that what I focus on is the detail and consideration that was put into these pieces. For example, in the piece “Bird in Hand” the shading found in the dollar bills used was really put to good use within the bird.

The shading near the front of the face and beak was really well done. I also love the texture he created for the sleeve of the person. “Petty Cash” was another piece that stood out to me because the text created was just so nice and clean. The “Mona Lisa” blew me away because it seems so detailed and planned. You can just tell by looking at these that there was a great attention to detail. I’m posting my favorites on here but check out the rest by going to the gallery link below. Until next time!
