Josh Leidolf is the gallery award-winning luxury currency artist known as TRAN$PARENT. Based 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, his vision is to represent world currencies as vibrantly as the people who them. He has always felt that art should evolve with the times and with the people, so set out to do something revolutionary that no artist on the planet has yet accomplished.

TRAN$PARENT creates museum quality, ultra-fine transparent currency art, depicting the front, back all hidden security features located in the middle of the bill in his breathtaking works. Every American denomination from the $1 to the $10,000 bill, international currencies such as Euros, Pounds, Shekels, Peso, Yuans, coins and multiple crypto currency pieces are also subjects of his extraordinary work.

TRAN$PARENT’s art was inspired by the fake news campaigns of the current right/left media outlets as a metaphor for being transparent with the people, with your loved ones, with your business associates, but most importantly with yourself. He hopes that his collectors use their pieces as a daily reminder to remain truthful and transparent no matter what the situation.

His museum quality, fine currency art, displayed ornately framed and/or as contemporary diasec, hangs in the homes, businesses and yachts of affluent private collectors, celebrities, famous athletes, politicians and art enthusiasts across the nation. His clients include Dan Marino, Dwyane Wade, Pitbull, Udonis Haslem, Slightly Stoopid, Matisyahu, Gil Green, Chris Osceola, Indy Al Miller, multiple hedge fund managers, business owners and the famous wealth money manager to the stars Jeffrey M. Fratarcangeli. His first publicly-sold piece went to one of the heads of the Seminole Indians and co-owner of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

Since going public, TRAN$PARENT has donated his art, energy and effort to more than 25 reputable charities including: The Alzheimer’s Association, Kids in Distress, Saving Lives in Israel, The Little Lighthouse Foundation, The Boys and Girls Club, The Dan Marino Foundation, The Special Olympics, NYC Bigs and Littles Mentoring Program, Charities to feed and educate underprivileged children in Haiti and Mexico, The Pancreatic Cancer and the Autism Foundations.

His works are currently represented and on display at numerous high end galleries in South Florida, Greenwich, CT, New York City and the Hamptons.
