Brazilian Artist Paints Pop Culture Icons on Coins

Brazilian artist and designer Andre Levy has chosen an interesting art work: Coins. He uses the images on a variety of different coins to paint well-known pop culture figures on to them.

While others can’t squeeze their ideas inside a canvas, This Sao Paulo-born, Frankfurt-based artist is able to make pop culture icons fit in a coin as if painting on regular paper isn’t hard enough.

He uses a variety of coins from different countries. The project has been exhibited in different galleries.

This is what the artist had to say about his work on Facebook: “Coins are actually massively reproduced little sculptures. 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?”

I’ve written up the names of the characters on the coins, but how many of them did you know before reading them?
