An Incident at the Theatre

Mark Wagner is best known for his intricate collages made entirely from deconstructed U.S. dollars. He destroys thousands of bills yearly to create works which pointedly and playfully explore the intersection of wealth, power, value, and American identity.

Having previously commissioned Mark to create a portrait of The Gazillionaire which is displayed inside the Absinthe Hallucinator (a rolling RV cocktail bar), Spiegelworld commissioned this new work with the company’s kraken muse as the central figure. Closer inspection also reveals Superfrico’s signature penguin, Spiegelworld’s Secret Society symbol and the imbibing of plentiful cocktails.
