Kim Seungwoo is a Korean contemporary sculptor, based in Seoul, South Korea, famous for his sculptures created by using Korean coins and fabric buttons.
The coins build a complex, surprisingly detailed and three-dimensional kinetic form. Each sculpture consists of thousands of coins assembled in a flowing, swirling pattern that build the brilliance of each work.
