Born in 1982, Penny is a UK-based stencil artist known for his intricate, hand-cut spray painted works on uncirculated currency.
Penny graduated from Chelsea College of Art & Design and Central Saint Martins and quickly established himself within the urban art scene in London. He has since received global critical acclaim for his hand cut, extremely detailed stencil artwork. He finds inspiration in everyday objects and often overlooked ephemera but money is the most prominent recurring theme in his work, which he regards as “representative of a sinister voyeur, an omnipresent force watching over its subjects”. Through his choices of the objects he paints on and interacts with, as well as his techniques, he brings the subversive ideas behind street art to a different kind of public property: the type that can fit in your wallet.
