Moneygami by Yosuke Hasegawa gives a fun twist to the leaders that front international currency.

With intricate folds, the artist has succeeded in making bills from around the globe into art. He takes each leader's visage and adds different headpieces to give a fun twist to money. Yosuke Hasegawa's process of making these fun designs takes from five to thirty minutes.

Lincon sports a cap, Ghandi a top hat and Queen Elizabeth a variety of turbans and a even a sailor cap. With these animate pieces, Yosuke Hasegawa brings an indulgent amusing aspect to tender. The designer tells Co. Design that his intent was to create an aspect of fun: "I want to make people happy with spending money. It is just different way to spend."
