Bitcoin Revolution Takes Place At Moniker Art Fair

This October, Moniker Art Fair returns to east London’s iconic Old Truman Brewery for its sixth year, having firmly established itself as London’s premiere event for contemporary art rooted in urban culture.

For this year’s edition, Moniker Art Fair has teamed up with global art, music and technology collective Fork The Banks, in an exciting venture to become the world’s first international art fair to accept Bitcoin payments. The collaboration confirms Moniker’s reputation in the modern art market as a progressive fair that seeks to inspire social change.

Their ‘Renaissance is Now’ installation focuses on the solutions offered by global connectivity, decentralisation and collaborative consumption. Displayed across a 50ft wall, the installation will take centre stage and aims to inspire and inform, leaving the visitor with a sense of hope and belief that our world really can be changed for the better.

Frankie Shea, Director of Moniker Projects, says

‘Over the last 6 years, Moniker Art Fair has helped forge a direct, unpretentious approach to appreciating and collecting art from a new generation of contemporary artists. With ‘Renaissance is Now’, our goal is not only to produce a visually stunning installation, but to introduce Bitcoin and its benefits to the wider public.’

Specialising in urban culture and its related genres, Moniker Art Fair will showcase approximately 20 national and international contemporary art galleries. The fair will showcase the work of legendary Bristol stencil artist Nick Walker in a Moniker Projects curated immersive setting.

MYA Gallery (FR) will be hosting the first UK solo show with the highly collectable French street artist Bom.k. A Star Wars inspired collection of works by Ryan Callanan (TAG Fine Arts, UK) and original works by French artist WK Interact (Kallenbach Gallery, NL) will also be exhibited.
