The purpose of the python-wxgtk4.0 package is primarily for application 
developers to use in porting their applications to wxPython 4.0 (Phoenix). 
There isn't much of a reason otherwise to use the Python 2 version of 
wxPython 4.0.  Instead, you should use python3-wxgtk4.0 with which you can 
'import wx'.

If you really would like to use the Python 2 version, you can do:

PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/wxPython-4.0.1-py2.7-linux-amd64.egg python
import wx
