About the collection of works:
This collection was crafted in Frank Wilders studio called the ‘Fact0ry’ during March of 2018 in San Francisco California. The idea was conceptualized in mid 2017 during the uprise of cryptocurrencies. The theme of “Money Art” has been a trend in pop culture and society since the late 2000’s with many riding the wave using the hundred dollar bill and Benjamin Franklin as their primary influence. It’s clear after the rise in digital currencies that it’s only a matter of time until cash is obsolete. The Dead Benji Sculpture was digitally sculpted and 3D printed in PLA. Equipped with a Sterling Silver chain and Ethereum Totem. The Dead Benji Canvas was created from a photo realistic digital rendering, using dynamic lighting and shading. The work was then transferred onto canvas with Acrylic Paint and finished with Resin
