Michael K. Stark reimagines common subjects with unique styling and interpretation. The artist's manipulation of the $100 bill, flags, and lottery tickets explores evolving relationships with money, luck, and the American dream.
Michael K. Stark has recently returned to creating art after a 25-year hiatus. Born in Los Angeles, Stark’s journey as an artist started while living in Vienna, Austria, and then stopped 11 years later in Orange County, CA. During his first active period, the artist's works were featured in 35 art exhibitions, 13 of which were solo shows.
Stark’s second act as an artist began in late 2021 when he picked up a pen and sketched the $100 bill. That sketch gave birth to the “Wall of $100s” series. Stark developed the Wall of $100s to be exhibited specifically in Las Vegas. He believes that no city in the world has as unique of a relationship to money as Las Vegas, and that it is a town where one can truly test the limits of money and what can be done with it.
