Collection: Money Collection (2013)

The first 28 strong, bold, collage style collection held at The Media One hotel, Dubai where $64,000 of Dollarsandart was given away in exchange for $1 bills....

 

A $20,000 sand scattered Masterpiece called 'INDULGEN$E'....

this sand, money and life lessons combination boldly contained in this, the cornerstone and masterpiece of the first dollarsandart collection....

 along with 27 other sand meets money with a story painting - all hefty box framed originals, each celebrated with hand embellished Money Collection prints, each with their own element related story, each $1,400....

amounting to the $64,000 giveaway and the $64,000 question!  From the archives..... 

 What on earth would happen? Wheat, the ex-Civil engineer who fell on hard times and turned to Art as a form of salvation threw his 'nothing to lose' hat in the artistic arena....


Launch night back in March 2013 - Day one of 28 days.....

Let's dig a bit deeper as art tells a story in full vulnerable glory as back in 2013 this newbie crashed into the Art world uninvited following this initial heartfelt feature on day 1 of the 28 days project...

 Given Wheat was working on the commercial side of nearby Emirates golf club by day....

 

With prolific output of this his first collection, by night in this, what he calls his  'beautiful mind' moment..

 finding solace in aswell as acrylic paint but both $1 bills and the elements of the earth : sand!

 

Thankfully media picked up on the gamble during the 29 day solo show....

 

From print to the early days of digital as we know it.....

 

 The $20,000 'INDULDGEN$E' painting gifted in exchange for a  $1 as word spread....

 

 With over 2,500 people visiting the exhibition over 28 days in a bid to win one of the prints or indeed, Indulgen$e.

 

With the dollarsandart stall set out in style but not without risk - that's the dance of life!

A true marketeer giving it his all....

 Going gorilla....

 

Getting seen, and as Art history was made with the  oneday to be infamous Dollarsandart installations with Dart dollar installation signed by the top 8 in the world from both 2013 and 2014...

...to the more than meets the eye, It's Pool time....

and the closing piece of 'Closing Dirhams and Dollars' often overlooked by many but those who 'get it' - well, 'get it'....

helping establish this rather  bold venture, with the Gorilla in the room.  

Here's the closing highlights as the salvation and dream became a reality.....

 

One sensed this was indeed, just the start!

Enjoy THE MONEY COLLECTION - each on tells a story and here's to them finding the right home at the right time! The artist prefers to personally meet buyers of his original work - nothing personal - it's an energy thing!
