At first, I thought that this picture was all about propaganda or a campaign advertisement. I was surprised to find out that this is more of an artwork featuring the letters on the dollar bills. We Need a Revolution is a very interesting artwork. I find it a clever idea to artistically use dollar bills to create a message.
About We Need a Revolution
This contemporary art is fascinating and I would love to try it. I can see that making this artwork involves folding of bills. It is just a simple process but it can create an amazing result!
