King Saladeen is a world-renowned self-taught American contemporary artist whose work is exhibited all over the world. The iconic “Money Bear” is his most distinguished work. In his adolescence, Saladeen showed great interest in art with his attention to detail. His family took notice of his gift at an early age and allowed him to beautify the walls of their home with his talent. This was a great outlet that allowed him to express his emotions, gain insight to his creative self, and foster the skills he has mastered today.
