The event is the culmination of the Scotland Fintech Festival 2022 and will celebrate the development of the Scottish Financial Technology ecosystem and the outstanding achievements of individuals and organisations within the sector.
Trevor, a pioneer of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in the art world, is the only guest artist invited to attend the ceremony, at the Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa in Edinburgh on Thursday evening, where he will be exhibiting five of his paintings.
He is delighted to attend the event and share his ethos and work which will include his iconic Bitcoin Angel, based on his painting of Bernini’s baroque marble sculpture, The Ecstasy of St Teresa.
He said: “This is a wonderful opportunity to recognise the most talented innovators in this sector and to celebrate how Scotland is embracing this exciting new era.”
Trevor is fine art graduate and traditional painter who has worked at the intersection of art and technology for more than a decade. He has experimented with QR code paintings and augmented reality (AR) but when he invested in Bitcoin in 2017 it inspired a new creative direction, leading to his crypto-themed AR paintings and his passion for NFTs in art.
This summer he staged an exclusive Grand Party at Stirling Castle celebrating art, tech innovation and community and bringing together hundreds of NFT art enthusiasts from across five continents. One of his latest works, The Fallen Angel, recently featured in a billboard art exhibition in Times Square, New York.
DIGIT Founder Ray Bugg said: “We are delighted to have a selection of Trevor Jones’ artwork on display at the Scottish Fintech Awards.
“The awards celebrate ingenuity and innovation, so it makes sense to showcase some of Trevor’s art at the ceremony. Trevor has worked at the cutting-edge of the art world for a decade, harnessing technology to create thought provoking and immersive experiences for audiences.
“We hope our guests take the opportunity to view the selection of artwork, and we look forward to welcoming Trevor on the night.”
