From the Collection “Faces That Make Money.” The distinctive pieces combine a collage made of real devalued international currency and layers of varnish over which.Akavia paints the portraits of modern subjects who have money, make money and spend money. The works are also burned with fire to create a glasslike 3-D surface reminiscent of old world craftsmanship. The end result: The rich and famous – such as Queen Elizabeth – are situated atop such personalities asBolivar, Leonardo, Lenin and Margaret Thatcher.
