Portrait of an Artisan~Monedarte

Artfest Toronto at the Distillery Fine Art Show Aug 30-September 2

 Cordo Bustos art can be described as hand-crafted Coin-Art.  Using the technique of cutting or piercing, in old coins from different countries, Monedarte begins the process by drilling holes through the coin.  The coin is then cut around the images that appear using a saw-blade that is finished through the holes like a thread through a needle.

Then slowly around the figures, the coin is cut leaving connections so that the pictures don't fall out.  Definitely one of a kind and exclusive.  All coins are finished with a polish.
