Artist James Charles has a rather interesting canvas for his work – dollar bills.
He says, in regards to using money as a canvas;
From the viewers’ perspective, probably the fact that it is (or was) money could be an attraction. We see paper money almost every day. We’ve been using it for generations. It has an iconic look to it in and of itself that hardly ever changes. I think that when it’s altered in unusual ways and framed as art, it’s a little bit startling. A curveball for the eyes, if you will.
