I have just discovered Kristi Malakoff, the hugely talented and multi-faceted visual artist who hails from Canada. Her portfolio of work is amazingly diverse and includes paper cutting, sculptures, flower installations, (postage) stamp pieces and money pieces…  Yes, that reads money, as in currency.

She gets around, too. Studying or working in Germany, England and Iceland. Most recently Malakoff has been in Moscow, where she participated in a 2-month residency at Proekt Fabrika.

Her work is intricate, beautiful and quirky. Here are some images of her wonderful money pieces:
