My 12 Wild Animals Made Out Of Banknotes From All Over The World

We are all living in a financial jungle. This series illustrates the species of our money world.

I had started this series when a good client of mine asked me to suggest some artworks to decorate a new headquarter for a financial institution. I thought it would be a good idea to create a series of animal portraits. Commercial entities like to associate with animals and their characteristics. People love to see animals as alter egos and sources of inspiration.

So this is my Money Zoo, my Money Farm, or my Money Jungle. A series of mosaics of animals made out of banknotes from many places and times. Animals created from pieces of dollars, euros, pesos, rubles, pounds, and other financial creatures of our times. Older legends like drachmas, liras, francs, and dinars, or even coupons and certificates from delicate periods of our history, have also been used.

Charles, were 'real authentic' banknotes use in these pictures, or are they copies? If real, I cannot imagine the fortune required to collect all those notes. Just curious.

I checked the artist's website. They're digital. Not that that diminishes their beauty, but no, they aren't actual physical (cut and glued down) collages.
