Artist's Bio - Marc Sky

The Art of Money - Where most people see a dollar bill as currency to be spent, Marc Sky sees it a work of art, waiting to be formed. Since his teenage years, he has been folding and sculping bills into unusual eye-catching models. He has created over a hundred unique and intricate sculptures out of them, all for view and sale on his website, www.DollarArtist.com

His favorite moments are when peoples eyes light up at seeing what artforms an ordinary dollar bill takes, from kittens and puppy dogs to human figures, initials, names, religious symbols and famous icons, including King Kong atop the Empire State Building.

When asked about the process of creating money art, Marc says, "I try to take the intricate images, patterns and swirls on the bill and create eyes and faces, then sculpt the rest of the body. I don't think the original engravers designed it with that in mind."

"What's fascinating is that if it's creased in a certain spot, I can get the face of a cute kitten. But if I crease it a fraction of an inch higher, it becomes the face of a vicious Tyrannosaurus Rex."

The paper that money is made of is actually more cloth than paper. "It's main ingredients are cotton, linen and flax strands," he says. That's why paper money in your pants pocket doesn't fall apart when you accidently put it in the washing machine. It also makes a wonderful medium for sculpting."

In addition to his website, Marc shows and sells his work locally and at exhibits, as well as creating dollar sculptures for people at social events. In his spare time, he likes to cook and doesn't go out to restaurants that much.

"But," he adds, "when I do go out to eat, I leave some interesting tips..."
