About Cypherpunks Collection Paintings

In Oct. 2023 we honoured the Cypherpunks, 30 years after the publication of “A Cypherpunk’s Manifesto” with a live Tribute event & an exceptional Art Exhibition in Lugano, Switzerland. Based on the Artworks shown in the exhibition, Oskar Stocker crafted 36 additional Original Portrait Paintings. They are released in three collections of 12 artworks each. The portraits of Collection Zero are given as a personal gift to the 12 portrayed protagonists. Out of them 4 were already handed over to Adam Back, Phil Zimmermann, Nick Szabo & Stella Assange (for her husband Julian) at the tribute event in Lugano.

The remaining 24 Original Paintings, created for Art Collectors like you are presented in the Collections I and II in February and March 2024.
