OHWOW will soon be inaugurating their LA gallery with a solo exhibition of recent work by New York-based tattooist-turned-fine artist Scott Campbell. The exhibition, entitled “Noblesse Oblige”, is Campbell’s West Coast debut and expands on his tattoo-inspired sculptures formed out of cut dollar bills; one new cubic piece, which measures over two-foot in width, uses $5000 worth of currency to create an intricate sunken relief.
Consumed on Campbell from 2007 is here.

I seem to have a thing for currency that’s been altered in some way. See earlier posts here, here, and here. Interesting, no?
