The toter has become a signature of ‘trash art’ – a subset of cryptoart. Here, the trashiness of the original toter is turned on its head. Executed in an engraving style in gold on a rich lapiz lazuli blue background, the trash can has been tuned into a luxury item. This digital 1/1 piece is connected to a physical piece: a unique giclee print, overprinted in intaglio with gold ink. Intaglio creates unmatched crisp lines, and an impossible to counterfeit raised print. The physical piece will also be secured with an ultraviolet feature, underneath the artist’s signature in the lower right corner. This ink only shows under ultra violet light, giving piece of mind that this is an authentic work.

“I was head-hunted by one of the world’s largest printers of banknotes, creating designs for central banks and other financial institutions. After learning the trade secrets of banknote production, I gained practical experience in every print process associated with the production of money.

The Banknote is the Alpha and Omega of art: it is pattern, typography, portraiture, drawing. It is lithography, silkscreen, intaglio, letterpress. A banknote is the touchstone of culture, the window into worlds, a monument, memorial, and memory. Banknotes are mass-produced, yet personal. Identical, yet crafted.

I use banknote design to express my ideas, and contribute to the future of finance, through fintech, blockchain and cryptocurrency collaborations.

I come from a fine art background, based on technique and craft. I reject lazy conceptualism, and make craft the basis of everything I do. I studied Fine Art at Leeds College, the Slade School of Fine Art, (London), and the Cooper Union School in New York. My work has been shown with Phyllida Barlow at the Serpentine, The Mall Galleries, Tenderpixel London and Rokeby Gallery.”
