Artist Will Smash Birkin Bag Record With $7.3M Custom Painted Masterpiece


Introducing the “Cosmic X Star” – Another World Record Created by Jack Armstrong

Now you can attach the ultra-luxury women’s fashion designer label to artist Jack Armstrong’s long list of credits.  Coming soon at $7.3 Million, his Cosmic X Star women’s handbag will smash the Birkin bag record, the Mouawad diamond handbag record and even the ‘Easter Egg’ women’s purse record.

Armstrong is the modern day Van Gogh and worked with global icons Warhol and Basquiat in New York City.  He has exhibited his own creations worldwide, selling to some of the world’s richest billionaires.

Artist Jack Armstrong Will Create The World’s Most Expensive Handbag for Women. Priced at $7.3 Million. 

The luxury handbag will be titled the Cosmic X Star and will top all Hermes Birkin and other diamond encrusted bags, to become the ultimate rare art fashion accessory for women.

The Cosmic X Star lady’s bag will be a one of a kind original and suitable for the ultimate client.  The luxury handbag will be custom painted by Armstrong in his famous Cosmic X style and he will partner with a renowned luxury brand.

Armstrong will partner with a leading luxury brand to exhibit the most expensive women’s fashion bag ever created.  It will break all records including the Mouawad diamond handbag.

The price tag of $7.3 million is a reflection of the finest art accessory in the world, for the ultimate UHNW art collector.  This art piece will be suitable for the most exclusive event or equally at home in the new owner’s private collection of art and fashion.

There will only be one original handbag and 100 Serigraph prints on exotic bags, created by Armstrong and the designer working closely together.  A serigraph print is an original piece of artwork utilizing a process that applies ink through a silkscreen onto a material.

The 100 Serigraph print exotic handbags will be priced between $100,000 to $200,000 each, depending on the material chosen.

The Ultimate Gift, World’s Most Valuable.

Cosmic ‘X’ Luxury Bag to be exclusively named for the buyer:

If the Cosmic X Star handbag is purchased in advance of its completion, Armstrong will “name” the bag for the new owner.  Like the iconic Hermes bag named for Jane Birkin, the new (icon/name) will always be identified with the ‘X’ bag, creating an ultra-current, fashion meets art – moment in time.

If Amazon mogul Jeff Bezos were to purchase it as a wedding gift for his upcoming nuptials with Lauren Sanchez, it would be renamed the ‘Lauren‘ bag – replacing the Birken bag in high fashion.

Just like the Elizabeth Taylor diamond, which was named for the film star, the Cosmic X Star handbag will carry its new owner’s name proudly into the future.  It will be the ultimate gift for the ultimate UHNW couple or individual.

Armstrong has completed only 100 paintings and art objects owned by UHNW collectors globally.  This will be Armstrong’s final fashion statement, after creating the world’s most valuable painting, motorcycle, boots and bicycle.  Although his last, the Cosmic X Star luxury bag will be perhaps his finest project.


The incredible list of Cosmic ‘X’ World Records held by Armstrong, in partnership with some of the world’s favorite brands include:

1. Armstrong with (Harley-Davidson) – creates the world’s most expensive motorcycle: Cosmic Starship Harley V-Rod ($50 Million).

WARHOL NAKED Will Sell For Record $300 Million

Record Breaking Art and Culture News – Will Billion Dollar Art Become The New Crypto?

The Cosmic “X” original painting titled “Warhol Naked” by American artist Jack Armstrong, is now slated to sell at $300 Million (USD). This is big news in the art world, as it will set a new record for American art, breaking the current ‘Marilyn’ record.

Andy Warhol’s Shot Sage Blue Marilyn painting is 1 of 5 silkscreen on linen paintings of film icon Marilyn Monroe. It was created in 1964 and originally sold in 1967 for only $5,000. Last year, the “Shot Sage Blue Marilyn” sold for $195 Million, making art the ultimate liquid asset in uncertain times. Jack Armstrong says “it is interesting that art is now completely financialized and a strategic part of every UHNW (Ultra-High Net Worth) portfolio.”  The previous record for an American artwork was $110.5 million set in 2017 for the 1982 “Untitled” painting by Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Armstrong recently declined a $200 Million offer for his Warhol Naked masterpiece, saying he understands it should bring a minimum of $300 Million in this private sale. The acrylic on canvas painting is his seminal work out of only 100 Cosmic X original art paintings created between 1999-2019. Andy Warhol made 32 Soup Cans that were originally priced at $100 dollars each, yet only 4 sold in a gallery sale. The current record for a soup-can painting is now $37.5 million.

Armstrong states, “I can appreciate that ‘Salvator Mundi’, attributed to Leonardo da Vinci and sold to Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia (in the world’s most prestigious auction house) holds the current record price of $450 million for a painting, yet there is still a dispute regarding its authenticity.”

With banks becoming insolvent around the world, places to store portable wealth are becoming limited. You can’t carry a building with you and gold is heavy. Between Bitcoin and art, art is a physical asset you can transport at a moment’s notice. If the internet suddenly goes down, you can’t move crypto currency or digital assets, including NFT’s.

“Art will soon reach $1 Billion per painting. I believe Warhol Naked will achieve this record”, says For Super Rich owner, Eric Poirier, who is handling the painting sale.

Poirier continues, “In today’s art market, people want solid provenance and the rarest most ‘exclusive’ contemporary art. This is what will drive the market. This is why Armstrong’s Cosmic ‘X’ Art will break the billion dollar level, with a single painting as it’s rarity, style, provenance are unquestionable. With only 100 Paintings ever made by Armstrong and his DNA in every painting, there will never be an issue of authenticity with Cosmic X art.”

Armstrong says, “With over 3,300 hundred billionaires in the world, billion dollar paintings will become commonplace in the future. The most valuable paintings will deliver much higher returns than crypto, while art insiders achieve multi-billion dollar fortunes like early crypto investors.”

People will exhibit billion dollar paintings in homes and in private museums. A luxury billion dollar art investment will be shared with family and friends. Currently, rare art is the #1 portfolio hedge with ultra-high net worth clients. Family offices, Venture capital firms, hedge funds, corporations and top billionaires will adjust their portfolios to include the most iconic art.

Armstrong says, “Much has been written about Warhol the artist. Andy was very kind to people, even though he’s been viewed as avant-garde and socially connected to the world’s rich and famous. This painting captures the true ‘spirit’ of Andy, with its deep red color and bold signature in white. Warhol is an image Andy spent his life creating.”

Jack continues, “The Warhol Naked canvas is set to take its place at the top of the world’s most valuable art. The graffiti-like colors around the edges of ‘Warhol Naked’ and bubbling ripples of paint throughout the painting show the incredible energy just under the surface that Andy only revealed to his inner circle of friends. The magic of Warhol the Pop Art icon is symbolic in this painting, created just 13 years after Andy passed. It’s Andy at his deepest level, stripped of all his facade, wigs and humorous wit. It is Warhol Naked !

Armstrong says, “This will possibly be my final sale, as my health is a question mark these days. It would be nice to be alive to see it.  There are only 33 Cosmic X paintings left in my private collection.”


Mr. Armstrong is working with Eric Poirier, owner of For Super Rich. Mr. Poirier has the exclusive listing for “Warhol Naked.”

The Cosmic Starship Harley he sold in 2012 for $3 Million has recently changed hands in a record art sale. Armstrong exchanged his $50 Million Cosmic X Painting titled: Star Key #733 with the family that owned the custom painted Harley Davidson motorcycle.

We had the pleasure of interviewing Jack Armstrong and get his personal reactions to the big news.

Artist Jack Armstrong - Star Key #733 paintingStar Key #733

The painting’s #733 title has a significant meaning. It is the exact ct. number of the 733ct Black Star Sapphire Of Queensland, which he loaned to Canada’s Largest Museum – The Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. In 2007, the Black Star Sapphire Of Queensland was featured in the grand reopening of the Crystal Addition, which was the biggest event in the museum’s history.

Black Star Sapphire Of Queensland

The Black Star Sapphire Of Queensland was exhibited in the American National Gem Collection (Smithsonian Museum) from 1961-1969 and was owned by artist Jack Armstrong from 2002 – 2008. When Armstrong loaned the Black Star Sapphire to the Royal Ontario Museum for their Grand Reopening party in July 2007, the world once again got to see the most famous star sapphire in the world shine like the moon with the most perfect star gem on earth. The sapphire was the star of the show when the most important VIP’s arrived in Canada for the grand opening celebration that lasted a week.

Armstrong says.“The Cosmic Starship Harley motorcycle is my masterpiece and will either be exhibited to the public once more or will be sold to a public or private museum, or collector. It will allow the public to see this one-off piece of motorcycle art history.”

Armstrong was quoted, “My motorcycle is now officially the Most Valuable Bike in the world. I don’t want it to be stored any longer in a vault and would like to see it reappear in a public or private collection. Similar to my friend Andy Warhol, it truly is my Campbell’s Soup Can.”

Paul Jayson is a well-known and highly respected UK Motorcycle historian, curator and restoration expert. He states, “The Armstrong ‘Starship’ Harley is simply the finest art motorcycle ever made.”

Cosmic Starship Harley - Jack Armstrong

The Cosmic Starship Harley had been stored in a climate-controlled vault for 10 years and has not been seen by the public since it’s 2010 World Premiere event in L.A., California. Attended by many celebrities, this amazing event was covered by the International Press. Jack Armstrong and actor Lorenzo Lamas were both filmed on the motorcycle at the legendary Bartels Harley Davidson. Jack also talks about Andy in the below video.

Armstrong says he feels a bit like Leonardo da Vinci, who travelled with his own “Mona Lisa” painting his entire life. Armstrong states, “Some things change your life. This Starship Motorcycle is like a part of my family. It’s the most iconic motorcycle in art history and I will now search for the right setting to display it. I want to share it with the art and museum world once again.”

Many in the art world believe Jack’s Cosmic Starship Harley motorcycle is a singular art masterwork. It stands alongside his other masterpieces: Warhol Naked, Cosmic X Paradigm and The Last Wizard as the most important works in “Cosmic X” art.

Armstrong says, “It seems amazing that I told Warhol in the 1980’s when I rode him on the back of my 1000 Harley Sportster in New York City that one day, I would create the world’s most valuable art motorcycle. Andy not only thought it was a great idea, but I actually saw him creating motorcycles in his Last Supper Exhibition for Rome just before he died.”

Jack continues, “It was possible that after all our rides together, Andy started painting motorcycles. 25 years later, when I was being photographed by the world press in L.A. I thought of my friend Andy and my old Harley and smiled for the cameras.”

Warhol was driven in his own Rolls Royce by Mick Jagger, Liza Minelli and Imelda Marcos. But Armstrong believes Andy riding on Jack’s 1980 Harley Davidson were the only times, Warhol ever rode on a motorcycle in New York City.

Jack Armstrong feels the same way about the Cosmic Starship Motorcycle as he did with the famous sapphire. Saying “It needs to be seen so it can cosmically change the way people feel. As they view it, the motorcycle comes to life in extreme colors that make the mind bend. It changes their own reality in ways that only the viewer can describe after seeing this motorcycle live and in color on exhibit. I feel it’s an unforgettable experience in motorcycle and art history.”

Armstrong continues, “The person who will collect it and curate it in the future, can build a car or motorcycle collection around it. Or center it in any renowned art collection and watch it virtually steal the show, no matter what priceless paintings surround it. My Cosmic Starship Harley will become the ultimate conversation piece, when anyone who loves art enters its orbit.”

For Armstrong to trade one of his favorite paintings for possibly his favorite creation, is nothing new for the rebel artist. Jack states, “I created this motorcycle to be seen. The only way for that to happen was to remove it from its hidden existence. Let it shine again on the world stage, where it will occupy a place in the art and museum world like no other motorcycle can.”

Armstrong channels all his 100 rare, original paintings and the Cosmic Starship Harley motorcycle (a 2009 Harley Davidson V-Rod) from Universal Transcendence. He lets the object he’s painting to virtually come to life, by simply allowing the universe to flow through himself as the creation takes place. Oneness is the unique state of being that Armstrong says is not ‘only the ‘center’ of his talent but is also the metaphysical state of creation that created the stars.

U.S. Artist Plans to Donate up to $350 Million to “Help Save Children in Ukraine” Charity

Jack Armstrong, founder of Cosmic ‘X’ art, will donate up to $350 Million in a rare art sale.

American artist Jack Armstrong is offering his rare art collection of the 7 Most Expensive Paintings in the World by a living artist. Mr. Armstrong will donate 50% of his $700 Million sale (or best offer) to the respected charitable organization – Save the Children – “Help Save Children in Ukraine.” They have an “exceptional” four-star rating by Charity Navigator.

The artist is selling his most valuable works to benefit the refugee children of Ukraine and their families, during this humanitarian crisis. The actual buyer can of course nominate their own charity of choice. Ukraine’s innocent children are sadly caught in the crossfire of this adult war. It should never have come to this.

Armstrong’s most valuable art originals will benefit Children in Need.  “Children are priceless in comparison to art“, says the artist. This donation to the Save the Children – Help Save Children in Ukraine fund will help provide children and families with immediate aid, such as food, water, hygiene kits, support and cash assistance.

Save the Children has been operating in Ukraine since 2014, delivering essential humanitarian aid to both children and their families. Together, we need to protect these helpless children. Since their founding 100 years ago, the charitable organization has changed the lives of over 1 billion children. In 2020, they reached more than 197 million children.

Mr. Armstrong has many friends and colleagues in the Ukraine and Russia. He hopes this art sale can become an inspiration for artists everywhere, to help Ukrainian children and families in this critical moment in history.

Save The Children: 501c Charity

Half of the total collection proceeds from this priceless Cosmic ‘X’ collection sale will go directly to the Help Save Children in Ukraine charity. By utilizing a 501c charity, this provides the investor, hedge fund or private collector, a complete 50% discount after the tax-free deduction.

Cosmic ‘X’ Art is the World’s Most Expensive – 2022

When you speak about the most expensive art in the world, the names ‘Basquiat’ and ‘Warhol’ come up, as sales of both artists’ work now exceed $100 million per piece. The still living member of the Warhol, Basquiat and Haring NYC Art Tribe is – Jack Armstrong. Cosmic ‘X’ Art is the most significant and rare art collection in the world by a living painter.
Andy Warhol’s “Marilyn Monroe” Could Break Auction Record

Fixed at only 100 pieces (lifetime total) and completely influenced by unique cosmic visions, it allowed him to create a new style of art he named – Cosmic ‘X‘.  This new art category was first created precisely 30 years after his famous relative – Neil Armstrong landed on the Moon.

The official name: Cosmic Extensionalism has been written about worldwide. Yet, artist Jack Armstrong has never completely explained how he came to develop an art technique and style so completely different from anything else that has come before or after it in art history. When asked, he carefully explains it as: “A ‘universal transcendence’ in art and in artist that is a completely separate (new) art category and singularly unique in style and merit.”

10-Piece Bat-Signal Inspired Luxury Collector Set – The New Batman Watch

An ongoing partnership between Kross Studio and Warner Bros. Consumer Products expands further with a new Batman watch. Their latest collaboration features two new projects in celebration of the upcoming Warner Bros. Pictures’ film “The Batman.” First is a new 10-piece, limited-numbered “The Batman” Collector set and a new series of “The Batman” – themed watch rolls.

The luxury collector set is available for $100,000 USD and includes “The Batman” Tourbillon watch and an illuminated Bat-Signal functional art piece. In addition, new “The Batman” movie releases in theaters internationally on March 2 and in the US on March 4, 2022.

The new Batman watch collection of watch rolls each sold separately for only $250 USD. Plus, they will feature four distinct representations that are inspired by iconic DC characters from the film: Batman (two editions), Selina Kyle (Catwoman), and The Riddler.

A Bat Signal for the Wrist
The talented Kross Studio team developed a wristwatch that embodies Batman. The Batman watch features dark styling, ultra-precise movement, and the Bat Signal representation famously used to summon the Super Hero. In addition, it is a canvas for a central tourbillon cage in the form of a Bat emblem.

The watch was created with a new version of Kross Studio’s in-house developed and produced caliber KS 7’000. The mechanical hand-wound 3 Hz caliber KS 7’001 has a 5-day power reserve. Placed atop the central tourbillon’s oversized cage, the miniature Bat-Signal’s louvered surface allows light to filter through. Plus it enables glimpses of the regulator below and makes one revolution per minute.

The new Batman timepiece presents a different reading of hours and minutes. The hour hand is affixed to a peripheral display mechanism orbiting 360° around the tourbillon. Plus, the minutes are displayed on a disk, making one revolution per hour. A domed sapphire crystal arcs over the dial in a low profile. Each luxury watch is hand-made and assembled on-site by Kross Studio in Gland, Switzerland.

Utility, Form, and Function
For Kross Studio, the timepiece design required an equal balance of ergonomic considerations and improved user experience. The unique D-ring crown, placed at 3 o’clock on the edge of the watch, maintains a low-profile. It ensures a more comfortable wear than a conventional crown. As a result, the luxury watch also improves performance with a faster, easier winding and time-setting experience.

The “The Batman” Tourbillon’s watch straps utilize an ingenious interchangeable strap system. Thus, it allows the removal and change of the strap with a simple ‘click’ of its quick-release button. Easily switch to one of the three included strap options. 1) a black calf leather strap embossed with the pattern of Batman’s armor. 2) a black rubber strap with black stitching. 3) a red rubber strap with red stitching. All straps are reinforced with a black rubber inlay for optimal durability and comfort.

Kross Studio - The Batman Bat Signal

Light Up the Night
The Bat Signal plays such a key role in “The Batman” Tourbillon. It is only fitting for Kross Studio to include a functional Bat Signal art piece as an integral element of each collector set. Each Batman timepiece delivers a functional Bat Signal that illuminates. Furthermore it immerses the collector into the universe of Gotham City and “The Batman”. Plus. it also hides a dedicated space on his backside to safely store The Batman tourbillon or any other watch.

Dark Personas
In addition to the collector set, Kross Studio also unveils a collection of four functional collectibles. Each watch holder model is crafted of genuine tan vegetal leather and comes screen-printed with a character’s striking likeness. Kross Studio designed each Batman watch roll with unique accents and complementary colors. Thay are inspired by the film character, represented with screen prints and contrast stitching. Continuing, red for Batman editions, blue for the Selina Kyle (Catwoman) option, or green for The Riddler model.

Kross Studio erases the boundaries between art, pop culture, and high horology. They proudly present a full collection of high-performance collectible products, in collaboration with a major entertainment company.

“The Batman” Collector sets ($100,000 USD each) and “The Batman” collectible watch rolls ($250 USD each). Both are now available for individual sale at kross-studio.ch or through official partners and select authorized retailers.

The 7 Most Expensive Paintings in the World – By a Living Artist

Cosmic ‘X’ Art is the World’s Most Expensive – 2022

When you speak about the most expensive art in the world, always the names ‘Basquiat’ and ‘Warhol’ come up, as sales of both artists work now exceed $100 million per piece. The still living member of the Warhol, Basquiat and Haring NYC Art Tribe is – Jack Armstrong. He has produced a significantly more rare body of work, fixed at 100 pieces and influenced by cosmic visions of enlightenment that uniquely helped him to discover a new style of Art that he founded and named – Cosmic ‘X‘ in 1999.

The official name: Cosmic Extensionalism has been written about worldwide. Yet, artist Jack Armstrong has never completely explained how he came to develop an art technique and style so completely different than anything else that has come before or after it in art history. When asked, he carefully explains it as: “A ‘universal transcendence’ in art and in artist that is a completely separate (new) art category and singularly unique in style and merit.”

This new art category was first created by the artist in 1999, precisely 30 years after his famous relative – Neil Armstrong landed on the Moon.

Armstrong explains, “My Cosmic ‘X’ art revelation took place in July of 1999, exactly 30 years after Neil’s first ‘steps’ on the Moon In 1969.”

Jack continues, “I understood in 1999, that most major art: Exhibited in Art-Fairs, Galleries and Museums was turning into conceptual nightmares of ridiculous proportion, offering nothing except the marketing of mass-produced pieces called art. Yet often made by an army of minimum wage (artist) assistants.”

“It was then I experienced a revolutionary enlightenment perhaps similar to Mr. Musk and his Mission to Mars. In my vision I realized that incomparable information ran thru me from different dimensions.  I used this information to create a new form of transmitting universal messages thru canvas and paint that can purely resonate into the universe for the ages.”

“I call it Cosmic ‘X’ because I channel it from the Universe and the other star planets we originate from.”

Jack further states, “One of my paintings is called ‘Ancient Universal Royals’ and that is the line we descend from. All this came in visions and dreams and the first painting was created in this vision. All the rest followed this pattern of letting the universe paint the art and using me only as a human facilitator.”

“This process is at a level that allows patterns & textures with words to appear from a universal alchemy I achieve through the meta-physical process I have developed with my universal cosmic X philosophy which induce trance like states that allow me to receive messages from other dimensions in cosmic revelations that are important for mankind to know as the ancient ones extend understanding which in essence is a cosmic reconnection for all beings.”
Stellar discovery: Human bodies are 97 percent stardust, claim scientists!


Cosmic Extensionalism[1] or Cosmic X is a new style of Art which was originally founded by Jack Armstrong in 1999.[2] Armstrong was inspired by an ethereal experience he had with the famous gem stone known as the Black Star Sapphire of Queensland. The stone is believed to have magical powers. At the time he destroyed all of his previous works.

Cosmic X is a genre of modern art styles as is the famous genres of “Cubism” by Picasso or “Pop Art” by Warhol. It was originally founded as an organic art movement and is singular by comparison.

Cosmic X requires the artist to become the art they are creating, by feeling no separation between the art itself. This requires a unique state of mind to be reached, connecting to a universal presence, which Armstrong believes exists in each being. It is this connection that creates the art, not the artist.”

Armstrong’s hair, fingerprints and DNA is present in all his paintings.

Dates: November 29 – December 5
Location: Miami Design District The Moore Building



Mitchell-Innes & Nash is pleased to announce its return to the Miami Design District with a winter exhibition space opening on Wednesday, November 24th. The first exhibition will be a group show featuring early works by Eddie Martinez alongside works by seven outsider, self-taught and American art brut artists that Martinez collects or is otherwise inspired by: Hawkins Bolden(1914-2005), Freddie Brice (1920-1998), David Butler (1898-1997), Willie Jinks (1921-2012), Ike Morgan (b. 1958), Mary T Smith (1904-1995) and Billy White (b. 1962). Taken together, the exhibition emphasizes a set of shared formal mannerisms between the artists: flatness rather than a sense of perspective, a graphic outline rather than finely wrought draughtsmanship. The work contains a sense of speed, immediacy and improvisation. Repeated figures assume a symbolic, spiritual or totemic quality.

Dates: November 29 – December 4 from noon to 8pm, Sunday, December 5 from noon to 6 pm – Winter Exhibition
Location: 151 NE 41st Street, Suite 125



Goodman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new and existing bronze sculptures from William Kentridge’s ongoing series of bronze glyphs, alongside a drawing from his most recent animated film, City Deep. Kentridge’s glyphs are a visual dictionary of sorts made up of a series of sculptures that form a vocabulary of symbols, representing a collection of everyday objects, suggested words, or icons that are ubiquitous in the artist’s practice. The glyphs started as ink drawings and paper cut-outs, each on a single page from a dictionary. The drawings were transformed into bronzes, to embody the weight and character their shapes on paper suggested.

In their smaller formation, the glyphs can be arranged in order to construct sculptural sentences and rearranged to deny meaning. An example of this can be found in Drawing for City Deep (A Fault to be Discovered Later). City Deep is Kentridge’s most recent film from his Drawings for Projection series. The film, grounded within Kentridge’s home city of Johannesburg, can be viewed as a counterpoint to the 1990 film, Mine, which depicts images of the deep-level mining industry. City Deep extends this depiction to the informal, surface-level “zama zama” miners who illegally work decommissioned mines on the edges of the formal mining economy.

Dates: November 24, 2021 – End of January 2022
Location: 151 NE 41st Street, Suite 123



Galerie Lelong & Co., New York, is launching a new temporary exhibition space at Paradise Plaza in the Miami Design District from November 28, 2021 to February 28, 2022. The opening will coincide with Miami Art Week and Art Basel: Miami Beach 2021, where the gallery has participated since its first edition in 2002. Galerie Lelong & Co. looks forward to furthering a deeper conversation with the vibrant and growing community in Miami by presenting pieces of historical and timely content from artists in the program, showing works that encompass a diverse range of media including painting, work on paper, sculpture, and photography.

New Coffee-Table Book by Lifestyle Guru Fran Berger

Fran Berger is a luxury lifestyle and home entertaining guru. She just released her new book titled “THE CATALOGUE” on October 20th. A VIP book launch party was held at Geary’s Beverly Hills. About two hundred invited guests celebrated her first book. Fran shared her wonderful journey, transitioning from a longtime restaurant owner to social media influencer and TV personality. She was a recurring guest on Hallmark’s “Home & Family” TV show.

“THE CATALOGUE” is an oversized coffee-table book. It includes a curated collection of Fran Berger’s favorite pieces, during her amazing career as famous restaurateur and home entertainer. She was the original owner of The Farm of Beverly Hills® for over 20 years.  The iconic, Beverly Hills restaurant is still a popular landmark. In addition, she expanded with a mini-chain of restaurants across the Los Angeles area.

Her countless guests flocked from far and wide to experience a taste of the warm atmosphere, authentic hospitality. Plus, they prized The Farm of Beverly Hills menu and thoroughly enjoyed dining in a true, Los Angeles environment. Fran had an innate love for entertaining others and worked hard to make every customer’s meal a special one.

In The Catalogue book, you will find Fran Berger’s 9 key sections: Coffee, Bar, Salad, Casual, Formal, Al Fresco, Cool Things, Flatware and Linen. She professionally shows you how to: create gatherings that kindle lasting memories,  use the collection of entertaining and kitchenware pieces you already have and love. In addition, read how take advantage of items you own but probably don’t use very often, plus select a few pieces you can add to make entertaining more memorable and infinitely easier.

Fran Berger new book: The Catalogue

Fran explains, “Welcoming friends into your home is itself an act of love. Providing a place for communion, facilitating connection — these things are vital in our increasingly disconnected world.

Over her career, Fran was definitely one of the country’s “go-to home entertaining experts.” She worked tirelessly to please all of her clients.  In the end, she ultimately knew they all desired to impress their guests with sophistication.

Through her collection of home entertaining and design consulting services, Fran Berger will curate these bespoke experiences helping you to celebrate the moments that matter in your life. Therefore, her first book gives her the opportunity to personally share her passion for sophisticated living with the world.

Combining over 20 years of experience entertaining family, friends and celebrities along with her dynamic and approachable nature, Berger quickly became a beloved tastemaker within her community.  As a result, she grew her restaurant into a city-wide chain.  The business was ultimately sold. Yet, Fran continued to remain personally invested in what made her restaurant so cherished and unique in the first place. That was her passion for gathering family, friends and loved ones around the table and creating lifelong memories. It’s in these intimate communal moments, Berger believes, that new relationships are created and existing ones are strengthened.

The Fran Berger book is now available exclusively at www.FranBerger.com, as well as Gearys Beverly Hills.

Christmas 2021: Cosmic ‘X’ Masterpiece Art Sale: 6 Paintings – $600M

The Six Rarest Cosmic ‘X’ original paintings from modern artist Jack Armstrong, are being exclusively offered here at “The Life of Luxury” in a $600 million Christmas sale.  This gives the serious collector, investment firm or hedge fund the unique opportunity of owning the 6 most symbolic examples of Cosmic “X” Art.
View the complete: Cosmic ‘X’ Art Collection

These incredible pieces represent the very “best of the best” of Mr. Armstrong’s work.  The Six Cosmic ‘X’ paintings each retail at $110 million and above, so the group sale is a bargain at almost $70 million off of retail price.  In the future, we strongly think each of these originals will break the $450 million sale price of the now “disputed” Da Vinci “Salvator Mundi that achieved the record price in 2017.

Rarity alone usually brings the highest prices in the art world and breaks all the records.  But provenance is perhaps more important as no one wants to buy a painting that is later found out to be not genuine.

Cosmic Dream Star acrylic painting - Jack Armstrong

“Cosmic Star Dream” – $110 Million (24″W x 30″H)

Jack Armstrong’s Cosmic Star Dream acrylic on canvas painting is visually stunning.  This particular art piece inspired the cover of his book, titled Cosmic X.  It is a fascinating journey of the incredible life experiences and philosophic realization of the iconic artist – Jack Armstrong.

Cosmic X. It’s like nothing else published in art or philosophy before.  Below are just a few ‘quotes’ from the book, “The Philosophy of a Universal Being” that will help to create a new universal paradigm in Cosmic ‘X’.

We hope you enjoy them and find the Armstrong (Rare 6) Art Collection inspirational, in multi-dimensional levels of cosmic realization.

1. “As art becomes code, it becomes cosmic.” – J.A.
2. “The enlightened human being is the most creative force on earth.” – J.A.
3. “We are code running thru the universe & returning again in code.” – J.A.
4. “How can you understand something that doesn’t exist until you become the code.” -J.A.
5. “If the universe is simply code & humans are code, then each of us is universal in nature, Infinite, Immortal.” – J.A.
6. “Once you realize we are code, the paradigms you then create, become infinite & unfathomable art.” – Jack Armstrong



The Last Wizard acrylic painting - Jack Armstrong

“The Last Wizard” – $120 Million (72″W x 48″H)

Jack Armstrong’s “The Last Wizard” is an amazing piece of modern art.  It’s got a very special meaning to Jack Armstrong, plus is the largest and most complex painting in his art collection.  This monumental art piece is a tribute to his friend, Andy Warhol.

“The Last Wizard” painting was created in the complete mastery of the Cosmic ‘X’ art form.
In addition, it’s Armstrong’s grandest painting in scale.  This visually brilliant, acrylic on canvas painting measures 72″W x 48″H.  “This is Cosmic ‘X’ as it transcends the known.

When asked to describe this phenomenal painting, Mr. Armstrong replied, “This is my largest painting measuring 6 X 4 feet.  It’s title is the ‘name’ Warhol gave me in 1985, saying after he was gone, I would become “The Last Wizard of Art“, as my work seemed to him more alchemy than art.  I believe this feeling of creating alchemy helped me to discover a synergy with the stars that became Cosmic ‘X’ in my work. This painting is a multidimensional creation.”

Jack continues, “This is a bold painting with no holds barred from embracing the universal magic that I follow & believe in.  It is the most complex painting in my canon of work and creates an unforgettable sensation in all who have viewed it.  It is museum quality and in pristine condition.”


Jack Armstrong’s 100 Cosmic X originals are already the rarest art on earth for “living” artists.

Mr. Armstrong is in third place after:
1. Leonardo Da Vinci – less than 20 originals. Italian artist

The $450 million Da Vinci painting, ‘The Salvator Mundi‘ or ‘Savior of the World, was sold by Christie’s Auction House to the “Crown Prince Of Saudi Arabia” – Mohammed Bin Salman.  The painting has now been deemed a fraud by most of the world’s top art experts, not employed by the auction house.

2. Jan Vermeer – 36 originals. Dutch artist

3. Jack Armstrong – 100 originals. American artist




Warhol Naked painting - Jack Armstrong

“Warhol Naked” – $110 Million (24″W x 36″H)

The “Warhol Naked” painting was created as a tribute to his friend Andy Warhol.  In addition, it’s likely Armstrong’s most personal painting, due to his artistic relationship with Andy Warhol.
Jack has said that one of the proudest moments in his life was being dubbed The Last Wizard of Art by Warhol himself.  The intense red color portrays a dazzling image of creativity.  Brilliant and bold, this acrylic on canvas painting measures 24″W x 36″H. Signed: Jack & Warhol with deep colors.

When asked “How can one best describe the relationship with a legend in modern art?”  Armstrong replies, “For me it was his kindness & interest in helping me promote my early work. For a 22 year old young man from Omaha, Nebraska to be accepted by the reigning Pop Star of the entire NY Art Scene was a cosmic-experience In & Of itself.  Thru Mr. Warhol, I sold my early work directly to Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jackson, Jackie Onassis & Freddie Mercury.

Jack continues, “Warhol in the 60’s 70’s & 80’s, kept the entire art world guessing what he would do next from $100 dollar ‘Soup-Cans’ & Coke Bottles, that now sell for 10’s of millions, to a ‘car-crash’ that achieved $105M.  He was the art godfather of Jean Michel Basquiat & a friend to me.

Warhol Naked symbolizes the shiny facade of the Man with the white wig, that every celebrity of his time desired to meet including the Pope.  Warhol Naked is my seminal work & will forever be identified with myself & Andy & just perhaps as ‘Starry Night’ is associated with Van Gogh.”


This is the main reason that Mr. Armstrong has always sold privately to some of the world’s richest and most private individuals.  He feels buying the original painting directly from the artist is the most non-controversial transaction and completely eliminates auction house or dealer impropriety.

The wife of Banker Paul Mellon, Bunny Mellon was an early collector of artist Mark Rothko.
Ms. Mellon eventually bought 13 paintings directly from Mr. Rothko at his small NYC Gallery.
The paintings she purchased for small amounts in the 1950’s were sold in 2013 for over $250M.  Today, they would bring over a billion dollars as their provenance is undeniable.

Armstrong states, ”People buying in the largest galleries & auction houses in the world have been cheated.  This is a fact. So when you buy directly from the artist (the provenance & DNA in the original painting) can never be challenged.”  Jack continues, “The rarest art in history has always proven to be the most valuable & the rarest modern art in the world is Cosmic X.


Each acrylic on canvas painting is multi-layered, but also includes Jack’s personal touch. Armstrong’s hair, fingerprints and DNA are presented in all of his paintings.  With only 100 paintings in existence, owning just one is an extremely rare opportunity for any art collector or financial group.



Cosmic #1 acrylic painting - Jack Armstrong

“Cosmic #1” – $110 Million (24″W x 36″H)

Jack Armstrong’s “Cosmic #1” is another of his most important paintings.  This exceptional, acrylic on canvas painting measures 24″W x 36″H.  It is possibly the most highly textured & colored painting of all Cosmic ‘X’. It also contains the Bold ‘Jack’ signature in paint over 6 times.  The most in Cosmic X. Van Gogh also never signed his last name, only “Vincent.”

Jack was quoted, “Van Gogh was the first modern cosmic artist and in a brief 10 year period (from the age of 27 years to his death at age 37), he not only taught himself to paint, but created a new style of painting using color and texture that were far advanced from his peers.  Critics and other established artists did not understand his genius.  They reviled him and his work, and also dismissed his friend Georges Seurat, the mystic who founded pointillism.  Both artists remained complete failures in the art world of their time, yet now command record prices for their work and are celebrated in museums worldwide.”

Jack concludes, “Cosmic #1 is my salute to Vincent & his unique ‘Starry Night’ (Vision) that continues to captivate the world with it’s magic.”


Regarding the Da Vinci $450 million sale, Dr. Tim Hunter’s quotes to the BBC about rarity and the painting sale are below.

  • Dr. Tim Hunter, who is an expert in Old Master and 19th Century art, told the BBC the painting is – “the most important discovery in the 21st Century”.
  • “It completely smashes the record for the last Old Masters painting to sell – Van Gogh’s Sunflowers in 1988. Records get broken from time to time but not in this way.”
  • Da Vinci painted less than 20 oil paintings and many are unfinished so it’s incredibly rare and we love that in art.



Cosmic X Paradigm acrylic painting - Jack Armstrong

“Cosmic X Paradigm” – $113 Million (24″W x 36″H)

Cosmic X Paradigm is “the only piece of mine dedicated to a Hollywood personality.”   The painting measures 24″W x 36″H.  Jack continues, “Cosmic Paradigm X is my final masterpiece. It is #100. The last Cosmic ‘X’ painting I will ever create.  It is unique in color texture & universal energy.  It is a magical living entity.


Jack Armstrong’s “Cosmic X Paradigm” is becoming a legend for its cosmic energy and because it is his final Masterpiece. It was created to replace his original ‘Cosmic ‘X’ Le Mans’ painting that was stolen in Dallas.  Steve McQueen’s 1971 film Le Mans inspired it.  “Cosmic ‘X’ Paradigm” is an incredibly important original and the final painting of Jack Armstrong, who met McQueen personally in Hollywood by chance in 1977. McQueen spoke to him about NYC, Motorcycles, acting, & Warhol, encouraging Armstrong to pursue his art dreams & keep in contact. McQueen passed away just as Armstrong’s career with Warhol & Basquiat began. R.I.P. Steve McQueen.

Before the ‘The Salvator Mundi‘ Da Vinci auction, the painting was owned by Russian billionaire collector Dmitry E Rybolovlev.  He is reported to have bought it in a private sale in May 2013 for $127.5 million (£98m).

Below are more quotes from the same BBC article on the Da Vinci sale:

  • “Wherever it ends up, you’ve got to hand it to Christie’s for its masterclass in the art of selling art.”
  • “In a bold move, without a hint of irony, the (Da Vinci) painting was sold in its Post-War & Contemporary Art Evening Sale – alongside Jean-Michel BasquiatAndy Warhol art.
  • “Why not in the Old Masters Sale? Because that’s not where the big bucks are.”

The major auction houses all know the power of both Basquiat and Warhol, but Armstrong only sells privately.  When the collectors who have purchased an Armstrong finally sell his work at an auction, we know it will break the internet, as Armstrong, Basquiat, & Warhol in that order, will be the most expensive art in the world.

For serious collectors, the thousands of available Basquiat & Warhol originals might not have the extreme exclusivity of being at the level of owning just One Armstrong Cosmic ‘X’ painting – out of only 100 originals, is reason enough to add this entire collection of 6 masterpieces as a centerpiece of any world class art portfolio.

The Art World’s Holy Grail


We believe that the 100 “Cosmic X” art originals are the ‘‘holy grail” of the art world.  Armstrong’s work is a central point in the new transparent era, where quality, indisputable authenticity, and rareness break every art record.

In addition to Jack’s painting collection, his “Cosmic Starship” Harley-Davidson motorcycle is available for $35 million. The (2009) Cosmic Starship Harley-Davidson is known worldwide.

Neil Armstrong’s Nephew Created One of the World’s Most Expensive Motorcycles



Cosmic X #1 acrylic painting - Jack Armstrong

“Cosmic X #1” – $113 Million (24″W x 36″H)

Jack Armstrong’s “Cosmic X #1” is one of the artist’s most important paintings.  This acclaimed and colorful, acrylic on canvas painting measures 24″W x 36″H.

Jack responded when asked about creating this incredible painting, “The most cosmic thing in my life was the period in 1999 that I spent creating the first Cosmic ‘X’ painting and it almost painted itself.  I watched it appear, almost as an observer and its color and composition still seem to me – otherworldly and unique, in its bold symbolism of the universal magic that co-exists in us all.”


Armstrong says, The purity of buying masterpieces directly from the artist with unchallengeable provenance, is the new business model for the most astute collectors in the world.  Provenance & Ultra-Rarity will create the new multi-billion dollar art-portfolios of the future.”

Cosmic Extensionalism[1] or Cosmic X is a new style of Art which was originally founded by Jack Armstrong in 1999.[2] Armstrong was inspired by an ethereal experience he had with the famous gem stone known as the Black Star Sapphire of Queensland. The stone is believed to have magical powers. At the time he destroyed all of his previous works.

Cosmic X is a genre of modern art styles as is the famous genres of “Cubism” by Picasso or “Pop Art” by Warhol. It was originally founded as an organic art movement and is singular by comparison.

Cosmic X requires the artist to become the art they are creating, by feeling no separation between the art itself. This requires a unique state of mind to be reached, connecting to a universal presence, which Armstrong believes exists in each being. It is this connection that creates the art, not the artist.”

Armstrong’s hair, fingerprints and DNA is present in all his paintings.
