Money don’t make happiness, but in this case it certainly makes beautiful portraits. Artist Evan Wondolowski uses thousands of paper strips from shredded U.S. Federal Reserve Notes to create these amazingly detailed portraits of celebrities and politicians. Evan says that he started with an underdrawing of the portrait on newsprint and then glued each shred of currency piece by piece before finishing up with a little vine charcoal to increase contrast. Each portrait creation takes up to a month or more. Keep an eye on his website for new works in the future.
