Artist Pascal Boyart adorns his street art with QR codes, and so far he has won some BTCs in sponsorship. The main crypto currency of the Bitcoin market adds its presence in street art.
Artistic mural raises Bitcoin
The artist Pascal Boyart recently painted a mural in Paris called „Confessions of a Red Buffoon“, a modern interpretation of Jan Matejko’s 1862 painting „Stańczyk“.
In Boyart’s interpretation, the titular jester is surrounded by trust notes on the floor and has what appears to be a tablet on the table next to him. Boyart has described the painting as dealing with both trust money and quantitative easing.
There’s another unique element: A large QR code in the lower left corner. Along with a spray-painted Bitcoin logo and a wallet address below.
The QR code allows anyone who scans it to donate Bitcoin directly to Boyart without any intermediaries. All of this points to Bitcoin adding to its presence in street art.
Boyart tweeted that so far he has received 0.0514 BTC. Since he first developed the artwork five days ago, or just under $500 to date.
