Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Arguably one of the most beautiful pieces of paper currency ever created, Los Angeles artist, Brian Drake uses the Bolivar as a backdrop for multiple interpretations on currency manipulation and the effects of globalization and indoctrination. Overpainted on actual paper currency, this piece creates a striking mix of soft, rich colors and muted undertones of social disarray. Part of the Brian Drake, Broken Bank Note series.

Hangs from included modified french cleat, for flush to the wall, no frame presentation.
