“Don’t defy DeFi” - Elon Musk

Digital Artwork Sold as NFT - 5906x8858 PX / 150 DPI

“Don’t defy DeFi,” Elon Musk tweeted on the 25th of March 2021, giving another massive public endorsement of Decentralized Finance (DeFi) yet. This new system of financial applications is on its way to dismantling the traditional centralised financial system, as it provides an alternative that is uninfluenced by any person or entity. We are in the midst of a movement that manages to merge evolving technology with the stagnant world of finance, the budding digital realm with the ever transforming art market.

In the artwork, we find ourselves looking at two of the most iconic sculptures on Wall Street, The Charging Bull and Fearless Girl in a confrontation with each other. The bull who in this painting is representing the traditional stock market and centralised finance, while the DeFi girl symbolizes the youth, power and beauty of DeFi. As our viewpoint is from behind the girl, we see the rage and aggression of the bull as it charges at us, trying to eliminate anything that challenges the status quo. This oeuvre depicts the emergence of DeFi in the public consciousness and how it challenges the centralised archaic financial establishments. It encourages us to embrace DeFi.

The bull who in this painting is representing the traditional stock market and centralised finance, while the DeFi girl symbolizes the youth, power and beaty of DeFi. As our viewpoint is from behind the girl, we see the rage and aggression of the bull as it charges at us, trying to eliminate anything that challenges the status quo. This oeuvre depicts the emergence of DeFi in the public consciousness and how it challenges the centralised archaic financial establishments. It encourages us to embrace DeFi.
