Scott Campbell

Having seen more than my share of Scott Campbell’s dollar bill art they are just as impressive in person if not more than as they appear in photos. This New York based artist is having his first solo West Coast show at OHWOW gallery in LA.

One piece uses $11,ooo worth of currency sheets to create an over two-foot cube, into which a three dimensional skull is carved-out. These works employ the familiar blue-collar vernacular of tattoo flash-boards – a skull smoking a cigarette, a skeleton’s hand in a provocative gesture, a single eye emitting a penetrating ray – and highlight the irony that exists within that imagery.
