This auction marks the opportunity to obtain Pepenardo's latest physical artwork, "ORANGE TIMES".
Winner of the auction will also receive Pepenardo's genesis 1/1 xcp token, ORANGETIMES.
"Orange Times" is the latest and first 1/1 artwork created by artist Pepenardo, measuring 72 inches wide by 40 inches tall, also making it the artist's largest physical work to date. This conceptual work is an appropriation of the main image sourced from the front page of the "Satoshi Times", a publication that symbolically heralds the emergence of Bitcoin.
Although the imagery is unrelated to the main title article, "Chancellor on the Brink of Second Bailout for Banks", Orange Times is meant to be a thought-provoking piece that challenges the viewer to consider historical events that were occurring adjacent to the creation of the genesis block on Jan 3, 2009.
The monochromatic use of the bold orange background and the mysterious, almost cryptic imagery creates a sense of intrigue and provokes reflection of the potential for technological innovation, namely Bitcoin, to disrupt existing socio-economic systems.
72" x 40" (182cm x 102cm), Acrylic on canvas, 2023. Signed on verso. Unframed.
Pepenardo, also known as Nardo, is a pseudonymous artist and creative director who has been active since 1452 (yes, you read that correct). His work is a blend of renaissance humanist ideals and internet memetics, embodying a unique combination of classical and contemporary influences. Nardo's career grew out of the Counterparty underground scene, specifically the Fake Rares movement. Despite much speculation, Nardo's real name and identity remain a mystery, adding to the intrigue and allure of his work.
