''Money on My Mind'' by VIII
Andy Warhol and the pop art movement played as huge inspiration to develop each artwork from the ''Money on My Mind'' series. The artist incorporates a bright atmosphere surrounded by money and grace, through color and composition.
You will see great figures. From Ben Franklin, one of America's most influential founding fathers and a signer of the U.S. Declaration of Independence, to Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. These bills tell a story.
''I grew up in Mexico. The Artists- Painters: Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera were the figures in the highest bill I'd exchange ($500 MXP). When I moved to USA, Ben Franklin took over the highest bill for exchange in my little world ($100 USD)''
Through this series, the viewers are exposed to a whimsical representation featuring the actual currency that the artist VIII has used most of her life as an immigrant from Mexico living in U.S.A.
