Hi everyone,

I am pleased to announce a new original Bitcoin-themed artwork. My father recently became heavily involved with Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies altogether. He has since started painting Bitcoin-related themes. Below you will find his first painting which is named, "The Bitcoin Bull." I apologize for the poor quality images, I quickly snapped with them with my iPhone, I will have high-quality scans of the artwork available shortly.

Name: The Bitcoin Bull
Series #: 1 of 2
Artist: Ludvig Manukyan
Size: 24” x 36”
Surface: Primed Canvas
Medium: Acrylic
Dated: August 23, 2017

Statement from the Artist: To the left we are met with a raging bull preparing for another charge against a large wall. The bull coupled with an upwards-facing, golden Bitcoin symbol that he is seen to be carrying represent the start of a bull market and a rise in the value of Bitcoin. The wall is composed of large rock formations that can be construed as the very blocks that make up Bitcoin. The wall can also be more appropriately interpreted as a market ‘ask’ wall that the bull is hammering down and must overcome. The wall contains hints of green to symbolize the current USD paradigm. The painting also features warmer tones to emphasize on the stresses, frustrations, and uncertainties of the market.

-----

We are in the process of printing 21 limited edition copies which are up for sale. The copies will feature fine Giclee prints on canvas and will match the original size of 24” x 36”. Each print will be signed by the artist, dated and uniquely numbered. Certificate of authenticity will also be provided with each print. Please note that stretcher bars and frames are not included. If you are interested in reserving or purchasing, please post here or PM me and please include the number.  Those who purchase "The Bitcoin Bull" will have the option of ordering the 2nd of the series, "The Bitcoin Bear" (same number) upon release.

Price: 0.2 BTC + Shipping 600 USD
Shipping: Only Internationally, Free for Mainland US

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin Core and some of its derivatives are the only known safe implementations of full nodes. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

Hey everyone,

I am happy to announce that "The Bitcoin Bull" Giclée prints are ready for sale and immediate shipping. All 21 copies were picked up from the lab earlier this week, and we have been hard at work in carefully numbering and individually signing each one. Please note that each painting will come with an official COA (Certificate of Authenticity) which is signed and numbered by the artist.

Ludvig Manukyan's Bitcoin paintings will always be strictly limited to production runs of 21 copies, in honor of Bitcoin's maximum coin supply. Originals are not for sale. Originals will be stored away and are planned to be donated to museums and art galleries in the future.

I think your drawing looks great. Right now I don't have the free funds for that, but will keep an eye on this.

If you don't mind I put three of the direct images in here (only jpg, png embedding doesn't work with imgur). I think this could attract more buyers. If you want it removed, or replaced by a lower-res version just let me know.






Good luck with your sale!

Thank you so much for the kind words and embedding the images. I really appreciate it!

Yes absolutely, please let me know :-) My dad has began painting the second one and we hope to showcase it shortly.

It's definitely a good purchase if you're on the death bed. I couldn't think of a better way to waste your remaining money.

This does not look like something that was easily made and you can tell that OP's father has talent. Death bead or otherwise this is a good purchase.

Thank you for the feedback! Haha! I wish Tongue

I think it's a fair asking price for a signed limited print on canvas of an early Bitcoin-inspired artwork. You are more than welcome to use the provided scan for personal use ie. print and frame a copy for your own home, and do let us know if you'd like a higher resolution :-).

We're also actively working on many other paintings which I hope you will find worth for your bit, heh.

This does not look like something that was easily made and you can tell that OP's father has talent. Death bead or otherwise this is a good purchase.
Thank you for the support and feedback! Smiley. As I told Lauda just now, you are more than welcome to have it printed and framed for your own home. If you would like a higher resolution, please let us know in DM Smiley

We encourage everyone to re-use this painting for personal use. :-D

Thank you for the feedback, it is well received and will be shared with my father. Yes, we have been getting a lot of attention and interest. I believe a total of 7 are in final stages, and we are working with 3 others.

Heh, thanks for sharing that OgNasty! I saw that a little earlier! Smiley My father is in slight disbelief at how well this was received and the attention it got. He is actively working on others.

Agreed. I'd say that all of them will be sold by the end of the week. His next production of the bear will probably already have reservations before it's even finished.

I'm excited for what the future holds for you and your father rusbitcoinuser.

Hi dai100905,

Thanks for expressing interest, yes I am happy to announce that many are still available, but they are quickly being purchased.

Can you please post the exact number that you are interested in. I would rather that we perform all communication via Bitcointalk's private message system.

Thanks!
