French street artist Pascal ‘PBOY’ Boyart Has added a bitcoin QR code in his mural and received over $ 1,000.
It would be very difficult to earn money being a street artist. Even if you draw upon receiving a request, it has been extremely difficult for you to continue to pay compensation for that work. However, thanks to blockchain technology. Now through bitcoin, it can be easily done by displaying the QR code or address.
"Rembrandt dos au mur" Paris 2018. Photo @harveymarshal Fresque réalisée sur le pont de la rue Riquet, sans autorisation ni rémunération, pour le plaisir de donner de la couleur aux habitants du quartier. Ce portrait de Rembrandt qui doit payer ses dettes aux services fiscaux à été peint pendant deux jours d'affilée. La technique utilisée est inspirée du pointillisme de Georges Seurat et du dripping de Pollock. Sur le coté gauche de la fresque, l'artiste propose un système de dons novateur en bitcoin, qui permet aux passants de le soutenir directement sans passer par un intermédiaire quelconque. Il suffit d'un smartphone avec un portefeuille Bitcoin pour envoyer des dons instantanés. #pboy #pascalboyart #painting #peinture #dripping #pointillism #impressionism #contemporaryart #gallery #artgallery #exhibition #artexhibition #acrylic #nistreetartnigraffiti #graffiti #streetart #parisstreetart #streetartparis #portrait #rembrandt #urssaf #fisc #money #bitcoin #btc #cryptoart #cryptocurrency #paris #75019 #rueriquet
Boyart is currently earning profit from this method. he has also made cryptocurrency and blockchain as a theme of his artwork.
“I first included a Bitcoin QR code in my work in November 2017. I painted a street art piece of a child asking his father ‘Dad, what is money?’ and I placed a QR code at the side of my signature.” Boyart told Hard Fork.
Boyart gained recognition from the cryptocurrency group after one of his art was on top of the Bitcoin discussion board on Reddit. The community was amazed to see the artist use Bitcoin QR code in a smart way.
Also at the Tokyo Bitcoin Meetup held in May 2016. Burlesque dancers performed performances, earning rewards with bitcoins. The relationship between art and bitcoin seems to be far apart and may be similar.
Many people still own and use the cryptocurrency, but if artists popular in the future, it may become normal to get or send rewards in this way.
