Her work is very versatile from impressionist landscape and still-life to realistically portrait. The common thread throughout her work demonstrates both whimsical flourish as well as deep symbolism.

Toby Weston

Toby Weston is working as a commercial digital artist and graphic designer in modern printing and digital production. His recent work draws upon technology as inspiration, medium and tool. Toby recognises the glitches and artefacts of the digital as visible brushstrokes which add authenticity and texture. Technologies relentless alienating march is the landscape to be explored.

Three New Artists to Add

New_Artists_A4BHello everyone – I’d like to welcome three more artists to the Art 4 Bitcoin list – John Lindh, Jon Masters and Stefania Nistoreanu. I wish them all well in their endeavours!

John Lindh’s focus is in photography. He is from Sweden and samples of his work can be found here.

Jon Masters is an American artist in New Orleans. Jon’s work focuses on surreal realistic landscapes and samples of his work can be found here.

Stefania Nistoreaunu is from Romania. Stefania paints abstract works that:

talk about the world of our subconscious that we are afraid to dive, but we need to visit them sometimes to know us fully.

Samples of Stefania’s work can be found here.

I have also put together a quick “how to” page for artists to follow and get themselves set up to accept bitcoin as well as other cyrptocurrencies.

As far as bitcoin is concerned it’s price is still holding against a torrent of criticism. The most recent being the fall of Mt. Gox. This may or may not have been due to something called “transaction malleability” and not due to an inherent flaw in the blockchain as some have suggested. The inevitable collapse that some though the Mt. Gox crisis would bring has not come to pass. At the time of this writing BCT is hovering around $450 USD although down from over $1000 months ago. One of the newer articles on the Mt. Gox debacle is from By Tim Hornyak, IDG News Service and can be found on the pcworld.com site. Here’s a quick quote:

Fewer than 400 bitcoins could have been stolen from the Mt. Gox Bitcoin exchange using so-called transaction malleability attacks, according to a Swiss study—far less than the hundreds of thousands of bitcoins the company reported.

The rest of the article is here – ‘Malleability’ attacks not to blame for Mt. Gox’s missing bitcoins.

More on bitcoin “misinformation” comes from Kyle Torpey and can be found on cryptocoinsnews.com  – Mark T. Williams’ Recent Bitcoin Article is Misinformation

Then there’s Fiat Leak – a totally fantastic site that tracks the movement of bitcoins from fiat currencies around the world. I watched this for a few minutes – there were upwards of 300 + Bitcoins that moved into China… where they are supposedly banned…  watch the world currencies flow into BTC in real time!

On a final note I highly recommend subscribing to Bill Still’s Youtube channel as he has some great insights into bitcoin and the other cyrypto’s.

Bitcoin Charts and Bubbles

stages_bubbleThe other day I came across this rather funny graph that I found while reading another article on bitcoin by Jesse Colombo of Forbes called “Bitcoin May Be Following This Classic Bubble Stages Chart“. In the article Colombo compares the rise and fall of bitcoin prices to that of Dr. Jean-Paul Rodrigue’s “Stages in a Bubble” in which enthusiasm leads to greed and then delusion only to be followed by a massive slide back to reality… which is still upwards but nowhere near the flamboyant “highs”.  Now I’m all for bitcoin! But I do think that rampant speculation and human greed has pushed it too high too quickly. Corrections are a given. The best technical charting I’ve seen for bitcoin can be found at bitcoincharts.com where you are able to access such charting capabilities as MACD, Aroon Up/Down, Chaikin Volatility and Commodity Channel Index. Check out the link I just mentioned and it will take you to an updated graph that includes those same technical indicators.  So what’s Colombo’s position on BTC?

I plan to eventually take a position in Bitcoin (in addition to precious metals and other hard assets) for my portfolio as a hedge against an eventual global economic crisis that I foresee occurring due to the popping of numerous post-2009 economic bubbles as well as the ensuing debasement of currencies that would occur as a reaction to this economic crisis. For now, I am waiting for the current froth to blow over before buying in.

As for me… I still own some bitcoin… and I still mine it and yes I’m still selling my art for it!

Artists Wanted!

Help!

Artists wanted!

Art 4 Bitcoin™ is brand spanking new. There is only one artist up so far and that would be me – Chris Schillinger. I need your help to get the word out to get artists listed on this site. The listing if free and the only catch is they need to accept bitcoin as a payment method. No it does not mean only bitcoin – just one of the options for payment must be in BTC. I will even list a gallery page on this site and link out to their site.

If you are interested in accepting bitcoin I suggest researching it via Google… I myself process though Bitpay. I decided to use Bitpay because I made a purchase of bitcoin miners online and paid with bitcoin. The processing agent was Bitpay and I found that the transaction went smoothly. There are other BTC payment processors and more information can be found on the bitcoin wiki located here.

Help me get the word out… Bitcoin Artists Wanted!

Hello world!

Chris Schillinger

Hello World and Welcome to Art 4 Bitcoin™. I’d like to introduce myself – I’m Chris Schillinger – owner and webmaster.

Artists can list for free on this site. Contact me and I’ll put up a link to your site as well as display a sample gallery page of your works on this site. If you are an artist and are not sure where to begin I suggest you check out the page “what is bitcoin” then check out Bitpay and Coinpayments for payment integration solutions. Yes I use both of these payment processors myself and they can be see on my own art site www.schillinger.ca.

I’d love to hear from other artists who also sell their works for bitcoin or who plan on doing so. If you’re new to bitcoin feel free to ask any questions.
