Rency Signed Embellished Two-Dollar Bill "The Art of the Presidency"

 

RENCY is a famous yet elusive American-born underground street artist who specializes in pop art culture. Tired of seeing his work on the street disappear before his eyes, he started to archive his work on genuine currency..."something that would never be discarded" he said.

The artist has created hundreds of unique and rare works of art on currency - how the name "Rency" evolved - and the art form is now referred to as Rency Art." His art has an edgy feel, and often conveys controversial political statements and unique stylish satirical illustrations. Using real currency as his canvas has created tremendous excitement among the art community.

 

 

 

A genuine uncirculated United States two-dollar bill, embellished with offset lithographic printing to one side by anonymous street artist Rency, titled The Art of the Presidency, signed in permanent marker to the reverse side by the artist. The embellished side features garish printed photographic portraits of Donald Trump and his children, toned in flamboyant, arbitrary colors. The names of each person depicted are printed below the portraits, with the dates of the artist’s hypothesized presidential terms for each. Artist signature is printed in plate to the upper right of embellished side. This piece is housed inside a clear lucite case for ease of display and safekeeping.

The note was sold in a May 21, 2017 estate auction for $143 with 34 bids
