Free Money from the Chapman Bros


Jake & Dinos Chapman recently defaced £20 notes at this years Frieze Art Fair in reaction to the rocketing prices in the art world.
The notes went like hot cake and started selling for £100 a pop, however I imagine you would have trouble paying for a round in the pub with it.
They have widened this project and are now giving away free downloads online. Grab one before they all run out, could make a nice little poster.

There's been a bit of a spat about this with street artist D*face crying foul. We got a soundbite from him if you're interested:

We'd seen the D*Face cash before but don't think D*Face had seen the chapman brothers DeFaced Goya prints.
All 3 great artists and all 3 take inspiration from others, like us all.
