The crypto-artist Pascal Boyart unveils a monumental work after 5 months of work
French artist Pascal Boyart unveils a modern version of the Sistine Chapel at the gates of Paris after 5 months of work and a 20,000 euros patronage in cryptomoney.
The modern version of the Sistine Chapel
After having made his name last year through two frescoes „Freedom guiding the yellow jackets“ and „Confessions of a red jester“, Pascal Boyart says, „Pboy“ returns to an atypical place with 1K Daily Profit a monumental work of 100 m² composed of more than 400 characters and the fruit of 5 months of work.
Thus, the artist has just unveiled his modern version of the Sistine Chapel created at the „Studio la Fonderie“, a former gold foundry on the outskirts of Paris, in the commune of Ivry-sur-Seine. The main fresco is 8 metres long.
Pascal Boyart said :
„Michel Angelo was able to paint the Sistine Chapel thanks to the patronage of Pope Julius II. Today, we had the opportunity to write history thanks to this patronage of the crypto community for this modern chapel. »
Involved in the use of new technologies in the service of his art, Pboy is recognised as one of the most innovative crypto-artists of his time. He was one of the first artists to apply a Bitcoin QR code (BTC) to his murals. He also organised the first Street Art treasure hunt to win BTCs in Paris in January 2019.
Dedicated to the artist’s values centred on freedom and independence in his creations, Pascal Boyart launched a patronage campaign in cryptomoney in August 2020 to finance this audacious project. The artist managed to raise 20,000 euros in BTC and Ether (ETH).
In addition, the patronage gave the right to non-fungible tokens (NFTs) representing parts of the work in digital version. In other words, the 12 international patrons who supported the project are also holders of the work in digital version, unlike the physical work, which is not for sale. Patrons such as Thomas France, former co-founder of Ledger, and WhaleShark have supported the project.
The fresco and the place have been modelled in 3D to allow the whole world to visit it in virtual reality from a simple smartphone. The public will be able to immerse themselves in the space, zoom in on details or walk along the characters to discover the work.
The digital version will be available online at sketchfab.com and the artist’s version will be available on December 17th.
