Discover A Sculptural Art Form The "Hobo Nickel".
The "Hobo Nickel" is the art of modifying coins and this sculptural art form was already in vogue in the eighteenth century! Now one of its main representatives is the UK-based engraver and urban artist called Shaun Hughes.
His specialty is to change the faces on the coins into other faces or to add different kinds of decorations to the surface of the coins. The results are stunning especially when you think about the size of the coins he uses for his sculptural artwork.
Here is a video in which the face of the famous US President Lincoln is transformed into the mysterious anarchist called "V" for Vendetta.
