This is a genuine FF5,000.- ‘Empire’ banknote, so it has real value! This is not a reproduction.
‘5000-Empire-1’ is the first FF5,000.- Empire banknote painted by Wxyz.
The artwork is signed on the back, it comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Wxyz was born in Paris in 1980, he grew up and still works today in eastern Paris.
He owes his artistic awakening to the observation, from a young age, of wall inscriptions. Since 1996, he has painted many walls, mainly in Paris area.
Since then, he enjoys transforming letters and looking for new ways to draw Wxyz with ‘all the colours of the alphabet’ as he enjoys telling the children.
The last four letters here take the angular forms of his ‘tampon’, a lettering that he has declined many times in Paris, mainly on the metal blinds of the shops of the capital (see pictures at the end of the ad).
