Brochevski (Amai Rawls Jr.) b.2000 is an American artist who creates collages using hand-cut U.S. currency. He only uses real and 100% authentic currency to create his artworks, further validating his subject matter. By placing monetary value on the emotional rollercoaster that is life, Brochevski depicts everyday concepts embedded in a dreamworld where “money does grow on trees”. 

The Louisville-based artist uses the mutilated currency to question society's obsession with material status and disregard for personal well-being. He recreates scenes that consider his-own external surroundings, while casting George Washington as the main character in surreal landscapes. The imaginative vignettes featured in Brochevski’s work, explore a spectrum of emotional themes in human-life.

How Brochevski Began Making ~Money Art~

When Rawls was in 3rd grade, his art teacher would begin class with a 5-minute period where she would teach us something about art history, or something interesting in the world of art. And on this particular day, she showed a video about a guy named Mark Wagner, who made art out of money, Rawls thought it was cool, but as far as he was concerned he really only wanted to draw and paint.
Fast forward 7 years when Rawls was in 10th grade (sophomore year of high school) and he had gained knowledge that two good friends were getting me a Christmas present. Rawls had never been the greatest gift giver but he is a more sentimental gift giving typa guy, so he would rather make them something than buy them something. So after checking his wallet to find out he only had $12, that video of Mark Wagner making art out of money popped back into his head, and he gave it a shot. The first two money-Art pieces Rawls made were a sea turtle and an LSU tiger (their favorite animals). Rawls made them, then later gifted them, and they absolutely loved them. And that’s how this all started. There were a bunch more revelations that lead me to realizing this was something He wanted to take seriously. But that’s how it started!
