Originally from New Orleans, but now living and working in New York, Scott Campbell studies and chronicles working-class iconography commonly found in tattoo culture. His work highlights the irony within much of that imagery.

In Campbell’s cut currency works, he sources uncut sheets of dollars directly from the U.S. Mint and creates intricate sculpture-like pieces with a sunken relief effect by laser cutting the stacks of bills.

Thanks Rachael!
