Art in the Euro

euro_deface_05Greek artist Stefanos has been defacing Euro banknotes for an entire year, reflecting on his country’s ongoing economic, social and political problems. He creates scenes of death, freedom and revolution. Speaking to Design Boom Stefanos said:

“Observing the Euro banknote landscapes one notices a lack of any reality, whatsoever for the last five years the crumbling greek economy has hatched violence and social decay – so, I decided to fuse these two things. through hacking the banknotes I’m using a european document, that is in cross-border circulation, including greece – thus, the medium allows me to ‘bomb’ public property from the comfort of my home.”
