Shame & Disgrace
Looted, robbed and victim to public malfeasance, the Venezuelan currency has seen a steady decline in value over the last several years. Once the standard bearer of wealth in South America,
decades of corrupt leadership, ineffective public spending and global embargoes have devastated this once proud land. Arguably one of the most beautiful pieces of paper currency ever
created, Brian Drake uses the Bolivar as a perfect backdrop for multiple interpretations on currency manipulation and the effects of globalization and indoctrination. 49.125x49.25
