 unveils world’s 1st online art gallery for Bitcoin start ups & enthusiasts

Crypto enthusiasts everywhere longing for contemporary oil paintings for their homes or offices now have a destination at the newest online art gallery, Launched in late September out of San Antonio, Texas by artist, Irina Bezruchko, Bitpaintings aims squarely at the enthusiast with several vibrant examples of Bitcoin-centric paintings that speak directly to the soul of Bitcoiners worldwide. Notable paintings such as “A Tsunami is Coming”, and “Atlas Unchained” address broad, sweeping metaphorical and ideological undertones inherent to the Bitcoin space.

We are attempting something that has never been done before in this space…integrating underlying metaphors through art and digital currency, sometimes in a way that combines them both in a single piece”, says artist Irina Bezruchko.

Notably, her most recent addition, “Lakedaemon” includes a user-provided Bitcoin address to be displayed on an etching that is permanently affixed to the painting itself, thus moving the mediums of art and money closer towards a single, merged representation.

“We really wanted to allow people to express the sense of pride and camaraderie that comes with being an early Bitcoiner through a series of paintings that definitely aim to elicit an emotional response”, said Irina. joins a number of recent additions to the nascent crypto-art scene, such as “200 Bitcoins”, sold recently to an anonymous buyer by German artist Kuno Goda.

One area where differentiates its paintings from other traditional works is in its novel painting verification mechanism. Each painting includes with it a certificate of authenticity that is permanently and digitally embedded into the Blockchain. This Certificate is tied to an identifier encrypted Bitcoin address permanently attached to the back of each work of art to serve as a unforgeable serial number, which also aids in authenticity verification, should a buyer decide to resell their work of art.

“Artwork verification is a costly and tedious process, involving expertise and logistical hassles”, points out Irina.

“We decided to make this process easier by harnessing the unique power of the Blockchain to tie a physical asset to a reproducible signed certificate of ownership that is a part of Bitcoin’s soul-the Blockchain”.

While all of Irina’s paintings are on sale at a discount for buyers who use Bitcoin, they are also available through traditional legacy payment systems. Additionally, shipping is free for all customers in the US and Canada. Drop by the site and have a look… you might just emerge a newly enlightened patron of a whole new medium of art and money!
