Money, Power and Mark Wagner: Making Art with Dollars

Mark Wagner, the collage artist who created “Currency Portraits,” a series composed of meticulously cut pieces of dollar bills, is showing new work in an exhibition in New York City.

Wagner's currency work is precise, intricate and thought-provoking. With a whimsical theme and fantastical images, he challenges viewers to examine their relationship with money and the capitalist society in which we live.

An exhibition of his work can be seen at Pavel Zoubok Gallery until October 5th.
