Mark Wagner cuts up dollar bills and turns them into amazing pieces of art.
Portraits were among the first images Wagner made from dollar bills.
“Taking an object of public value and turning into an image of personal value seemed like a pretty OK thing to do.” he says.
But then Wagner moved on to more elaborate cut-up collages.
“Leaves pictured on the dollar bill grow into full plants. The refulgence and abundance of plant growth relates to the opulence of wealth. I like flowers, they look cool. And animals are often pretty, delicious, or like money fictitious.”
