Description: With the ongoing PSD2 revisions and the SCA mandates close to go live, biometric authentication is becoming a hot issue within the European society.

Mastercard, as ingenious technology company, raised swift understanding about biometric by creating
 a series of portraits using a unique technique – fingerprints. Showcasing the advantages of face recognition and fingerprint payments through a special art form of precision, placing Mastercard as a technological leader in the payments industry, offering its customers the safest way to pay. This project also emphasized that the technology should not be mistrusted.

Jan Petrov, a renowned artist was invited to paint portraits using only fingerprints and exhibit them at the Authentication & Biometry press conference. The viewers observed how the artist crafted such a portrait, live. The portraits were auctioned, this way everyone could buy the exhibited artworks with face recognition payment.
