Trevor Jones graduated with an MA Fine Art from Edinburgh College of Art specializing in drawing and painting while studying History of Art at Edinburgh University. After art college, he was director of Art in Healthcare for 7 years and also taught part-time at Leith School of art. As of 2015, he has been a full-time artist.
He is fascinated with integrating new technologies with his paintings to shift the way viewers understand and engage with a traditional work of art.
In 2011 he began creating interactive QR codes paintings. A little over a year later he was introduced to augmented reality, becoming the first professional painter in Britain and one of the first in the world to incorporate AR with an oil painting.
Since 2017 he has been consumed with cryptocurrency and this is reflected in his work.
His first NFT work released on December 14, 2019, a collaboration with artist Alotta Money, smashed all previous sales records on SuperRare with a 70 ETH bid ($10,027).
CoinDesk commissioned Trevor to paint the portraits of their very popular Most Influential series for 2019.
His work has been seen in numerous publications, including Financial Times, Bitcoin.com, EthNews, The Scotsman, and Hackernoon. It was also exhibited at Bitcoin2019 Conference, San Francisco, CryptoCompare, London and Coinfest, Manchester.
