Listen to this episode:
You’ve probably seen the art of crypto graffiti before. He is known for his mosaic photos of Hal Finney and JPMorgan Chase & Co. boss Jamie Dimon, but he is best known for his artwork “United Nodes of Bitcoin, ”Which depicts a $ 1 bill with a hooded George Washington and subtle nods to Bitcoin propaganda everywhere.
In our conversation, crypto graffiti explained its inspiration for “United Nodes Of Bitcoin” and how “Bitcoin Vs. The Fed” is phase two of that project. The Fed ”is a project he has initiated to post on billboards in Federal Reserve cities, with Bitcoin propaganda depicted on the back of the US dollar. He had great success when he launched “United Nodes Of Bitcoin” in 2015 and has been planning this project ever since.
He told me he wanted to spread the message in the Fed’s backyard and share the idea of healthy money with people who may not be as exposed to Bitcoin as people in more affluent areas. He is one of the most OG Bitcoin artists out there and he looks forward to 2021. He has his hands on a number of projects that could bring NFT-esque art to Bitcoin and with it a stream of artists.
Cryptograffiti closed the podcast with a positive message to Bitcoin artists out there, telling them to keep creating. Can’t wait to see what he will do next!
