cutting currency

Brazilian artist Rodrigo Torres’ meticulously cut currency collages are making waves in the art world. The artist’s gorgeous creations are made using a myriad of colorful bank notes from around the globe, and they were recently chosen by Art Basel Switzerland to be featured in this June’s Art Feature sector in Switzerland. Torres treats each bank note with the hand of an engraver, carefully pulling away layers to highlight the intricate design of each component.
