"100C-4" is the fourth FF100.- “Corneille” banknote painted by Wxyz. (The FF100.- ‘Corneille’ banknote is a French banknote created on 2nd April 1964 and issued as of 19th January 1965 by the Bank of France. He follows the FF100.- ‘Bonaparte’ banknote and was replaced by the FF100.- ‘Delacroix’ banknote.)
This banknote is held by two magnetized blocks of plexiglas, blocks size: 15 x 20 cm.
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 form of a "flop" in French or "throw-up" in English. This practice consists of giving a rounded, cloudy and childish appearance to the letters.
