Victor Nunes is a Brazilian artist and an Advertising professional. He runs his one Advertising agency in Sao Paulo.  During coffee breaks and reflecting time, he’s been putting together a vast and versatile collection of original portraits in which mundane objects and pieces of stationery, even food, play a key part: apple peels, egg shells, pins, pegs, measuring tapes, rulers, rubber bands…suddenly become part of his portrait features.

His Facebook page opens with the simple statement “Just For Fun”. However his “Many Faces” go way beyond the spontaneous doodle art. We had the pleasure to interview Victor to find out more about the origins of this wonderful collection.
