art :: money magic

Artist Marc Sky at DollarArtist.com has a magical way with money. He makes money from money but not in the conventional way. The Dollar Artist turns legal tender into intricate origami sculptures. His repertoire includes over three hundred fantastic folded models including dogs, cats, Yoda, frogs, hearts, and Wall-E, the lovable robot in the Pixar movie of the same name. He even makes utilitarian objects that you can actually use, like coin purses, paper clip holders and ipod holders.



The artist has been folding money since he was a kid. "I started in grade-school class, just folding my allowance money," he says. "When I ran out of that, I used Monopoly money to practice."
His folding practice has been flourishing ever since. You can purchase his "moneygami" on his website for $7.95 per dollar folded.


Making money from money - it's JUST COOL!
