Money Series Painting

I recently received a new painting to add to my small but growing art collection. It’s called 7 Euros by the Australian artist Anthony White. Seven Euros is currently worth 7 euros, including postage and handling ;-)
I asked Anthony some questions recently about his money series of paintings and how he started painting money.

In his previous life, Anthony was a stockbroker for Credit Suisse First Boston. He turned to art after his girlfriend became tired of his constant discussions about money..
“My girlfriend got sick of me thinking about money all the time. I guess this happens when you work as a stockbroker. My girlfriend thought I needed to get a hobby to try and get a more rounded personality. I went back to art and The Money Series was the first thing that came out.” AW

  1. lol, I love the fact that the first thing he starts painting is currency. I can imagine the huge sigh let out by his girlfriend. :D

  2. Yeah, if any one has a right to paint money, it’s someone that works with it.
    I’ve always thought it’s good to know your subject very well before painting it ;-)
