Currency Paintings

                                                          A New Way to See Money

John Engen's quote " All Banks are Art Museums and All Art Museums are Banks " conveys the theory that monetary institutions are the largest distributors of physical and conceptual art. The distribution happens globally because currency is printed art and has the ability to be transferred electronically. John captures both physical and conceptual art with his contemporary mosaic style symbolically representing currency's electronic capability.
