Fiver for Artistic_UK

Designed and created an old five pound note as part of the ‘Fivers For Artistic’ Exhibition and auction to be held at Sotheby’s late 2019.

The aim of “FIVERSFORARTISTIC” is to collect 250 old fivers and convince important contemporary artists to sign and then decorate the fiver in any way they wish making the note completely original. Artistic will then auction the collection of fivers to raise enough money to launch Artistic as a CIO charity. We have had a great response so far from some amazing artists ranging from Peter Blake to Mason Storm and the wonderful duos of Gilbert and George and the Chapman Brothers. We have now collected 207 completed fivers but we desperately need more . Where is the BANKSY fiver ? We have a wonderful note from the incredibly lovely Damien Hirst. Come on let’s make this happen in 2019 ? We know it can be done!
