Introducing Mister E
Guy Hepner is please to introduce Mister E (b.1987), a Miami based artist with a cash-centric approach.
Mister E is known for his colossal & colorful interpretations of US currency. “The art of money” is more than a phrase when it comes to Mister E’s creative art pieces. He takes society’s love of banknotes to an entirely new level by creating a colorful bold currency for art lovers around the world.
“When I started painting money I had no idea that it would take over my entire portfolio of work, but the more that I pursue it, the more I get excited about evolving my work with/through currency.”“My work is a representation of how I feel the world works. Money controls the world, yet I don’t believe it is by any means the most important thing in the world. People mostly view money as something evil, and associate money with greed. Through my work, I want to expose the beautiful side of money.”
His inspiration comes from all forms of US currency. From single dollar bills to hundred dollar bills, Mister E seeks to place beauty in the everyday item of legal tender. Mister E produces an unique take on an the everyday and claims inspiration from popular artist Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons and Mr. Brainwash.
“People used to wonder if I just did hundred-dollar bills as though it was all about greed. The idea that people wanted to put money on the wall being a sign of avarice. But that’s not it. What I’m showing is the fascination of money and what money does in the whole world.”
Through his diverse body of work, Mister E provokes viewers to think about money in a different way. One of the artists favorite series, titled ”One Hundred & One”, combines parts of the $100 bill and the $1 bill, to show the beauty in both, and promote unity between all people.”
Mister E’s colorful pop-inspired works are catching a lot of attention from celebrities, art institutions and collectors, including the likes of Adam Sandler, Floyd Mayweather, Lionel Richie and Miley Cyrus.
