Money, Power, Sex 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 preparing for the opening of a new 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.

His new exhibition will open at Pavel Zoubok Gallery on September 6th.
