Elite Deviance by artistic duo Brad Kuhl and Monique Leyton is an exploration of the ties between fame and infamy. The pair creates intricate portraits of disgraced millionaires using only acrylic and bookbinding tape over paint and canvas. In Kuhl and Leyton’s colorful and abstract portraits you’ll find a run-down of some of history’s most notorious cases of fraudulent crimes committed by the rich.
