On the list of sh*t you should never draw on, money is WAY up there, so you can imagine my tabooish delight when I attended the opening reception of James Charles' art exhibit at ArtNow NY. But this ain't like your ordinary break-the-rules doodling. James Charles takes money art to a whole new level. As far as I know, nothing like has ever been done before. No canvas, just mula

And it's not just the faces he's altered, take a look at the text on each of the pieces... It's all customized to spell out phrases that go along with the familiar faces. From Ren and Stimpy to Willy Wonka and his overworked Oompa Loompa to Jack Nicholson's Shinning Johnny and even Chairman Mao - James Charles does a GREAT job of capturing each character's most defining details and transforms the everyday commodity into a work of (pop culture) art. 

The show "333 Portraits On The Devil's Toilet Paper" is running from now till September 28th! Don't miss your chance to check out the exhibit and if you're lucky, snatch up one of these pieces for your own collection! Guaranteed, you'll never look at your Benjamins the same again.
