Slovakian artist Juro Kralik spent many years in his father's sculpting studio in former Czechoslovakia. He worked for a number of years as a freelance photographer and served as the President of Union of Slovak Professional Photographers, while also pursuing art in all forms of media.
In the early 1990s, Kralik founded Rabbit & Solution Creative Studio in Bratislava (Kralik means rabbit in Czech) and became active in graphic design. When Slovakia became a Eurozone member, it's currency ceased to exist and coins that people had not managed to exchange to Euros, became insignificant pieces of metal, thus the National Bank of Slovakia began to melt them down.
Juro Kralik decided to buy all remaining coins, and save their lives as each coin has its own history. Kralik gave them a chance to re-invent themselves as elements of shape and color in his widely received works.
