From the private collection of Steve Lazarides, Banksy's original art agent. Steve represented Banksy in his early years and brought his art to the attention of the public. The Di-Faced Tenner was created for a public stunt that Banksy had orchestrated, which consisted of depositing a suitcase full of counterfeit money in public during rush hour at Liverpool Tube station in London and the Notting Hill Carnival and Reading Festival. Later that year, an unknown quantity of Tenners was also published during the presentation of the Exhibition of the Ghetto of Santa Claus, held at the Lazarides Gallery. In addition to its fascinating history as an unexecuted public stunt, the Di-Faced Tenner had the honour of being the first artwork by Banksy to enter the private collection of the British Museum.
