Money is Material: Dollar Bill collage art by Mark Wagner

wagner-3Artist Mark Wagner has taken what is seemingly valuable to most and broken it down to its most basic components to create a collage made entirely of pieces of the U.S Dollar. He isn’t the first artist to create pieces out of currency, but I am impressed with the thought provoking messages of division of wealth, American identity, capitalism, and the American dream seen in his work, and his use of individual elements of the dollar bill. Hit the jump to see more of his work and a short video that gives some insight into his creative process.
