Serge Gainsbourg in Cigarette Butts

Swiss street artist Jinks Kunst is sick of cigarette butts that he sees cluttering the streets of city across the world. So, he came up with a rather creative way to dispose of that rubbish: Kunst spent three years collecting cigarette butts to create a perfect portrait of legendary French singer and cigarette enthusiast Serge Gainsbourg. In total, Kunst used 20,394 cigarette filters to create this tribute to the French master on the 20th anniversary of his death.
