19 amazing pop-culture portraits painted on coins
In Brazilian artist Andre Levy’s hands, regular coins become portraits of superheroes, pop music icons, and video game characters.
In Andre Levy‘s hands, regular coins flip into pieces of art.
The Brazilian artist turns the heads side of coins into fun portraits of superheroes, pop icons, and video game characters.
“Coins are actually massively reproduced little sculptures,” explained Levy on his wittily titled Facebook page, Tales You Lose. “This project brings individual character to each replica, and makes us think: Are we able to like one cent more than others, just by injecting new stories in it? Those are the Tales You Lose.”
