Sarah Meyohas

Sarah Meyohas (b. 1991, New York, USA) is a conceptual artist and pioneer in the field of crypto art. Her work has been exhibited worldwide, including solo shows at 303 Gallery, New York and Red Bull Arts, New York. Meyohas is also a venture partner at Spark Capital. In 2015, Meyohas created “Bitchcoin”, a cryptocurrency backed by her physical artwork. Predating the launch of Ethereum, “Bitchcoin” is the first tokenisation of art on a blockchain, effectively a “proto-NFT.” Today, Meyohas continues to investigate emerging technologies with familiar emblems of biological life: soaring birds, created using augmented-reality software, flock in unison with the frenetic variations of the stock market; rose petals, aggregately identical but individually unique, comprise the dataset for their AI-created equivalents. Meyohas’s practice provides an intelligible visual language to articulate the systems and complex operations that increasingly govern our world.

Sarah Meyohas received her BA in International Studies from University of Pennsylvania in 2013 and received her MFA from Yale University in 2015. The artistlives and works in New York and London.
