You can see more about how I made these art pieces at The Making of Knights of the Apocalypse.

The Cryptoart Revolution exhibition opens on December 15 – 16 by MoCA (Museum of Crypto Art) at 5 rue Saint-Merri. Five Knights of the Apocalypse by Bård Ionson will be unveiled in the crypt of the former Musée Pierre Cardin next to a display of the famous Pascal Boyart Underground Sistine Chapel. The space will be filled with hundreds of NFT / CryptoArt pieces from many artists in the NFT / CryptoArt space. 

Revealing the faces of five knights, representing Conquest, War, Apollyon, Famine, and Plague. The artist expressed the image of us in 2020 remastered in 2021, living as witnesses of a period that could be recorded in history, by combining human faces and the faces of clocks. Five Knights Of The Apocalypse reminds the human race that time is short.

The pieces express the emotions the artist has felt living through the 2015 through the present. Humanity has endured much change and disruption due to all of the things these five knights represent. It may feel as if the world is ending. Perhaps it is just being reborn into something new. Something we can adapt to and find joy in again. Perhaps you have felt the same.

Knight of Conquest

And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying as with a voice of thunder, Come.And I saw, and behold, a white horse, and he that sat thereon had a bow; and there was given unto him a crown: and he came forth conquering, and to conquer.

Knight of War

And when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, Come. And another horse came forth, a red horse: and to him that sat thereon it was given to take peace from the earth, and that they should slay one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.


And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star from heaven fallen unto the earth: and there was given to him the key of the pit of the abyss. And he opened the pit of the abyss; and there went up a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And out of the smoke came forth locusts upon the earth; and power was given them, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared for war; and upon their heads as it were crowns like unto gold, and their faces were as men’s faces. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.  

They have over them as king the angel of the abyss: his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in the Greek tongue he hath the name Apollyon.

Knight of Famine

And when he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, Come. And I saw, and behold, a black horse; and he that sat thereon had a balance in his hand. And I heard as it were a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, A measure of wheat for a shilling, and three measures of barley for a shilling; and the oil and the wine hurt thou not.

Knight of Plague

And when he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, Come.And I saw, and behold, a pale horse: and he that sat upon him, his name was Death; and Hades followed with him. And there was given unto them authority over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with famine, and with death, and by the wild beasts of the earth.
