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, featured in solo shows at New York’s 303 Gallery and Red Bull Arts. 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 tokenization 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, comprising 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 her MFA from Yale University in 2015.

The artist lives and works in New York and London.
