“Cosmic X” Experience from Artist Jack Armstrong Comes to New York City!
The “Cosmic X” buzz in the Big Apple air is electric. Iconic artist Jack Armstrong has taken over Times Square in New York City with a stunning, electronic “visual art” campaign. The Tony Lama, Cosmic Cowboy Boots were featured on the Ripley’s Museum (Giant Digital Screen) In Times Square for 2 years, from 2018-2020.
Armstrong feels that world famous Time Square in New York City, is the perfect city ‘museum’ to exhibit his “Cosmic X” art. NYC is well known for graffiti painting on the street, in addition to the giant, digital screens and billboards in Times Square. What an ideal canvas for Jack Armstrong to share his contemporary art with the world!
In total, there are 13 different Armstrong art videos running on the big screen above Ripley’s Times Square Museum. The Cosmic X videos will appear and rotate every 15 minutes, 24 hours a day. Each 30 second video showcases the tremendous talent of international artist Jack Armstrong, including his Cosmic Starship Harley motorcycle, Cosmic Bicycle and Cosmic Cowboy Boots. This iconic 2 year “Digital Art Exhibition” ran from 2018 to 2020.
In addition, gain a sneak peak at his biggest ambition yet – the world’s most expensive car. It will be a $100 million, custom painted Bugatti supercar.

Jack states, “I will create my own 100 million painting on a new Bugatti in 2021 in Macau China, which I am sure would make my friend Jean-Michel smile.”
Early in Jack’s art career, he became friends and collaborated with three legends of the art world – Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring. The bond they enjoyed together lasts to this day. In fact, take a look at the below video feature both Jack and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
One of the proudest moments in Jack Armstrong’s life was when Andy Warhol named him “THE LAST WIZARD” of art. The label has now become the title of the upcoming movie about Jack’s life.
Jack was quoted, “To be in Times Square with my Cosmic ‘X’ (Digital Art Retrospective) for a 2 year period is a great honor. I began graffiti painting with Jean Michel Basquiat in 1979 and we both dreamed of having our art seen high up on the huge digital screens that lit up the night.”
Last month, we were extremely proud to have been provided exclusive access to Armstrong’s upcoming book – Cosmic X. From cover to cover, it’s a cosmic journey like no other. Discover the fascinating life experiences and philosophic realization of this iconic artist. The book will be available in January 2019. Here is a preview of the stunning cover.
“Cosmic X” will actually be the first book of the Cosmic X trilogy. Jack just finished writing the third book, which will be titled “The Bliss Code-X.” The second book is named “The Code-X.”
We would also like to share several quotes from Jack’s “Cosmic X” upcoming book:
“Humans are easily convinced to question our own destiny,
when true destiny is found in the re-creation of ourselves in time.”
“We co-exist in the energy of stars & in their light,
find doors in the universe – open to the code we create.”
“When the universe that exists in the mind is recreated in code it becomes love.”
“Love is in the code you breathe. The code is inside all ✴ we enlighten to receive it.”
“If we knew the origins of the universe were encoded in the DNA of the mind,
we could more easily balance our connection in its core energy of love.”
“We hold the energy of life too tightly when energy is like breath, it must be created & released,
to flow & return so that we may experience a universal *transcendence that is beyond anything we are taught.”
Armstrong continues “Art dealer Leo Castelli (who once offered Armstrong a solo gallery exhibit) would be happy to see my work lighting up Times Square at night. He really believed in me.”
