"₿e Your Own ₿anker" 2021
Images above are of the L 1/6 Ltd Ed print (sold).
2 of the L size are currently available, and 24+3 A.P.s of the M sized ones are being pre-released here. This piece looks absolutely gorgeous at any size.
"₿e Your Own ₿anker" is part of a series, where I use conventional money (which to me is like a giant running joke on it's last legs now) to express the Bitcoin mindset, and where I play and mess about with fiat, inspiring your friends and family through beautiful art, to question "What is Money?" and go fall down the rabbit hole and wake tf up! I also love, how by using the fiat shitcoinery in art, inadvertently, the transformation into scarce art gives it exponentially more value than it intrinsically had to begin with. I love the irony of that. It's an incredibly liberating feeling to cut up a lie. Everytime it gives me pure joy!
The Energy of money is moving into a new era - it is shifting into the least physical representation we've ever had of it. The greatest and purest energetic form of money is riding on the algorithmic frequency that is Bitcoin.

The Platinum leafing is a delicate process that takes time and attention to detail and is done with a lot of love and care. The demand of all ltd editions is already more than we can handle right now, so we kindly ask you to bear with us please.
Any questions feel free to message me here in the chat box, or in the Twitter DMs.
My gratitude goes out to each and everyone of you who have and continue to support me and my artwork. My mission is to inspire people through art with the magic of Bitcoin!
Bitcoin loves you, and so do I :)
Although this art print is printed with UV colour safe inks, it is not recommended to hang it in a spot that get's strong direct sunlight during the day. If you must, then I recommend using UV safe glass as a double precaution, when you get it framed locally. Museum glass, is AMAZING, and also more pricey. You can't see the glass at all as it has zero reflections, it is the absolute best glass if you want to go all out.
When unwrapping and handling the print, please take care, with clean hands or using white gloves. Do NOT roll it in the opposite direction to the natural curvature of the paper (the same direction you received it in). In stead, I suggest asking the framers to flatten it for a day or 2, before they frame it.
As paper has memory, try not to keep it rolled up for too long (a couple of weeks at most) - having it framed will be the best way to preserve and protect it.
