Incredible Collages Made Completely with Dollar Bills

Artist Mark Wagner is at it again with his Currency Collages, 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 out of 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 countless presidential faces make up a map of the United States. 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.”
