Mark Wagner cuts up money and makes art.

The one dollar bill is the most ubiquitous piece of paper in America. Collage asks the question: what might be done to make it something else? It is a ripe material: intaglio printed on sturdy linen stock, covered in decorative filigree, and steeped in symbolism and concept. 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.

Most of us like to eat potatoes but Lebanese artist Ginou Choueir likes to paint them. Literally. He uses potatoes as his canvas of choice when doing these JUST COOL portraits. He has painted sacks of potatoes and each seems to have a personality all it’s own!
