Tales You Lose is a novel artistic endeavor by Frankfurt-based Brazilian designer Andre Levy. As part of a creative project he began collecting coins from all over the world and painting over the featured presidents or royalty with iconic popular figures. Turning currency into artistic portraits of pop culture. Awesome!
