I want to be cremated, but FIRST, DISPLAY ME IN THIS.
One of my very most favoritest movies.
Incredible Currency Collages
Artist Mark Wagner has proven he can create any scene using only single dollar bills. His latest series, titled Currency Collages, involves cutting up single dollar bills to produce these incredibly detailed compositions. Using the currency as his medium, the American artist has a great talent for visualizing new images with the shades of gray and green, George Washington’s portrait, and the patterns of numbers across the surface.
This recent work includes a variety of humorous scenes in which Washington is fighting a dinosaur, and mowing the lawn. With the simple color palette and the limited variety of imagery to work with, Wagner is still able to produce amazing landscapes and scenes that most of us could never imagine emerging from a single dollar bill. He says, “Blade and glue transform it-reproducing the effects of tapestries, paints, engravings, mosaics, and computers—striving for something bizarre, beautiful, or unbelievable… the foreign in the familiar.”
Multimedia artist Elsa Mora creates enchanting cut paper sculptures using nothing more than paper, scissors and glue. Born and raised in Cuba and now living in Los Angeles, CA, her beautiful and delicate works of art feel like illustrations for personal folk tales that we’d love to read.
Elsa will be showing some of her work at the About Paper exhibition at the Couturier Gallery in Los Angeles, which opens on starting December 7, 2013. She’s also offering original works for sale via her web store and Etsy shop.
