Fiat to Crypto

Sandra Kowalski
Sandra Kowalski is an academic graphic artist, entrepreneur, and creator of a unique acrylic painting method.
 
She’s an ambassador of the unique lenticular printing (stereo-vario) technique, which Sandra used creating a series of 45 paintings called "The Rebirth of Eve". The works are now parts of two personal collections belonging to an Italian count and a Cypriot philanthropist.
 
A current resident of the Classic Car Museum ‘Classic Remise Dusseldorf’.
Creator of the Toyota art car for the Nascar V8 Europe 2020 race.
Speaker of the art festival of the gaming industry IFCC in Croatia.
 
The art geography of private exhibitions includes London, Amsterdam, Nice, Los Angeles, Limassol, ​​Dusseldorf, Barcelona, and Moscow.
 
The plot of this artwork was born instantly. The main task was to create an image of the main issue of recent years. What is more important - cryptocurrency or real money. Due to the fact that in Sandra's style she develops a romantic line, this work is no exception. An intense plot develops between the main players Christine Legarte, Vitalik Buterin, CZ, Charles Hoskinson and Satoshi. Any conflict of interest can be very symbolically portrayed through the prism of romantic emotion between a man and a woman. The question remains open - who wins?
 
Another defining feature of the painting is that it changes colour when in the ultraviolet.
 
Size: 120х75 cm
