Description

I’ve already made an engraved portrait of Julian Assange, as part of the 2019 Deplorables series of portraits. But I felt the need to return to Julian, not only because of recent events, but because my engraving skills have improved so much since that early work. I wanted to do the subject justice by applying the best of my skills. This artwork consists of 20 unique serial numbered editions.

“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.”
