Joshua Leidolf, the gallery award winning artist known as TRAN$PARENT is an American based entrepreneur, humanitarian, Nft/crypto enthusiast, world traveler and journalist. He is recognized globally in the art community as the father of transparent luxury currency and commodity art.
Residing in the Ft Lauderdale/Miami area, painting and drawing since an early age, collecting rare international currency and exploring creative photography in over 50 countries in his lifetime, he always had the dream of making the world’s currency as vibrant as the people who use it. He always felt like art should evolve with the times and with the people, so he set out to do something revolutionary that no other artist on the planet was doing.
He specializes in museum quality, ultra-fine transparent currency and commodity art from all over the world. Depicting the front of the bill, the back of the bill and all of the hidden security features located in the middle of the bill in his breathtaking works. This effect is used as a metaphor for him to spread his message of the importance of truth and transparency especially while making one’s living. To date, he has created every American denomination from the $1 to the $100,000 bill, international pieces like Euros, Pounds, Swiss Francs, Shekels, Pesos, Yens, Yuans, etc and multiple credit card, coins historical documents, maps, cultural icons and crypto currency pieces as well.
