Major Lazer Coin
Ever thought about what happened with your lost coins?
Lost and forgotten somewhere in an alley… But they could also be a fine piece of unique artwork by now, thanks to Andre Levy. This Frankfurt-based Brazilian designer paints tiny pop culture characters on coins. The project titled “Tales you Lose”, started out as a series of Instagram posts trying to inject some fun into ordinary change. Andre says of the project: “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?”
We think it’s awesome, your favorite celebrities and cartoon figures on cents you’ll never use anyways. He’s taking recycling up to a whole new level! Which cent do you wish to own?
