The Mona Lisa Of Motorcycles In $50 Million Art Sale

Modern artist Jack Armstrong is once again the owner of the most expensive motorcycle in the world!

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.

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.

The famous Sapphire was worn by both Priscilla Presley and Cher – on the first season of the “Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour” TV Show.

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.”

Cosmic Starship Harley Davidson custom motorcycle - Jack Armstrong

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.

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.”

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.
https://en.everybodywiki.com/Cosmic_Extensionalism_%22X%22

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.”

____________________________________________________________
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.

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.

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

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.
https://www.artlyst.com/news/duped-story-knoedlers-80m-art-fraud-netflix/

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.

https://nypost.com/2021/10/23/why-andy-warhol-and-these-four-painters-are-the-most-forged/

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.

https://www.thelifeofluxury.com/jack-armstrong-completes-steve-mcqueen-le-mans-replacement-painting-110m/

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.

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

https://nypost.com/2021/10/23/why-andy-warhol-and-these-four-painters-are-the-most-forged/

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.

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.

While living in New York City, Jack personally knew and worked with the “King of Pop” – Andy Warhol.  Of course, he is the leading figure in the visual Pop Art movement. In 2001, Armstrong painted the amazing “Warhol Naked.”  Therefore, this incredible piece of art is a touching tribute to his dear friend Andy.

Jack has said that one of the proudest moments in his life was being dubbed The Last Wizard of Art  by Warhol himself.  This beautiful acrylic-on-canvas painting is both brilliant and bold, and measures 24″W x 36″H.

Cosmic X 100 NFT - Jack Armstrong modern art

NFT Mania

Jack has given serious thought to the NFT (Non-Fungible Token) craze.  Especially, after the Beeple $69 million NFT sale at a Christie’s auction in March.   The Life of Luxury was the first to announce Mr. Armstrong is offering a magnificent NFT collection titled: Cosmic X 100.”  It includes all 100 digital images of his incredible “Cosmic X” paintings – for only $100 million.
https://www.thelifeofluxury.com/the-worlds-rarest-art-100-million-cosmic-x-100-nft-digital-art/

Cosmic Extensionalism or Cosmic X is a style of art, which was originally founded by Jack Armstrong in 1999.  He became inspired by an ethereal experience with the famous gemstone, known as the Black Star Sapphire of Queensland.

____________________________________________________________

By far the largest and most complex painting Jack Armstrong ever painted is titled “The Last Wizard.”  It is colorful and visually brilliant. This large acrylic-on-canvas painting measures 6 feet by 4 feet in size.  Interestingly, it is not only his largest painting, but also showcases his complete mastery of the Cosmic X art form.  Hence, the very one Armstrong personally founded in 1999.

Jack Armstrong states, “I feel the same way about “The Last Wizard” as Pollock must have felt about his painting “Blue Poles”, “Guernica” to Picasso, “Orange” by Rothko, and “Untitled” by Basquiat.  In the future ‘The Last Wizard’ will break the records of his peers, but the power of all these larger than life works will remain as the signposts that signaled the future of art.”

Global sales of art and antiques reached an estimated $50.1 billion in 2020

According to the 2021 annual Global Art Market Report sponsored by Art Basel, UBS and written by art economist Clare McAndrew, global art sales declined in 2020.  Total art sales fell sharply to $50.1 billion (USD), the lowest value in 11 years.  Most experts expect a rebound in 2021, as world economies continue to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

2020 Art Market

The global sales figure was down 22% from 2019, yet above the 2009 recession low, when sales fell by 36% to $39.5 billion.  The U.S. market continues to retain its position as leader, with a share of 42% of global art sale values.  Greater China and the UK followed at 20%.  However, Greater China did surpass the U.S. to become the largest public auction market, with a share of 36% of sales by value.

Online sales reached record highs – doubling in value

The COVID-19 pandemic forced many auction houses, galleries and fairs to either close or abandon in-person activity.  In addition, it also accelerated digital transformation.  As a result, online sales doubled in value from 2019 and reached a record high of $12.4 billion.  Plus, the figure represents a record 25% share of the market’s total value.  It’s important to note, for the first time the share of e-commerce in the art market has exceeded that of general retail.

There is no denying that art sells and can sell for very big money!  The rapid price appreciation of artwork can be quite astonishing.  How is art valued?  That’s a complex question with no easy answer.  But one fact we do know.  At the time of sale, art is simply worth – “what a willing seller will sell it for and a willing buyer will buy it for.

____________________________________________________________

The Meaning of Art & The Significance of Cosmic “X”

Art is inspiring. It both stimulates our mind and affects our emotions. People make art to tell beautiful stories.  A single piece of art can generate an experience. Yet, everyone has a unique opinion or point of view.  What drives the price of art?  The answer is not a simple one.

Scarcity is a key driver of price.  Other factors include who the artist is and the demand for any particular piece.  There is a well known phrase: “Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder” is so true.  Indeed, there is definitely an emotional connection to art.

Beyond art’s emotional value, only the rarity of the work & the intrinsic value of the artist’s place in art history assure record breaking art prices.

“It will be proven in future sales, that Armstrong as the creator & founder of the new category of art: Cosmic ‘X’ will break all records.”

We strongly recommend the acquisition of all 25 original Cosmic X masterpieces to add incredible value for any major collection or hedge fund.  With only 100 originals in the world, this sale offers the largest lot of “Cosmic X Art” in private hands and contains Armstrong’s most renowned work.

Alibaba co-founder and billionaire Joe Tsai is quickly becoming a household name.  He is a citizen of Taiwan, Hong Kong and Canada.  He was recently identified as the buyer of a $157 million apartment deal in Manhattan’s most prestigious condo tower.  The Manhattan property is located at 220 Central Park South.  The deal now becomes the largest residential sale of the year.
Brooklyn Nets owner revealed as ‘mystery buyer’ of $157M NYC condo

Joe Tsai is one of the richest men in the world.  In addition to being the co-founder of Alibaba, he also owns the NBA Brooklyn Nets and Barclays Center.  One would think if he owns the 2 most unique apartments in the most expensive building in NYC, plus the best stadium and sports team ….. he now needs the finest collection of rare art to showcase, right?

Widely known as “The King of Cool“, actor Steve McQueen personally encouraged Armstrong’s journey to New York City.  Once there, Jack later became friends with famous artists Andy Warhol and Jean Michel Basquiat.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bullitt

Jack said, “Talking to the biggest movie star in the world seemed completely ‘Cosmic’ for an art kid born in Wichita Kansas, who later grew up in Omaha.  Created in my ‘Cosmic X’ style of art, Cosmic X Paradigm is the only piece of mine dedicated to a Hollywood personality.”   The amazing painting measures 24″W x 36″H.  Jack continues, “Cosmic Paradigm X is my final masterpiece.

____________________________________________________________

Over the years, Mr. Armstrong has sold paintings to many famous celebrities and some of the wealthiest people in the world.  Although his name may not be as widely known as Warhol or Basquiat, we believe that will change.  We feel Jack should be named “The Rebel of Art.”  Over his entire, successful career as an artist, he’s only sold his artwork direct to the end-buyer.  He has never utilized traditional sales channels, such as museums or auction houses.

Another interesting fact is Jack’s first million dollar painting sale to billionaire tobacco heiress, Doris Duke.  Neither Basquiat or Warhol ever sold a million dollar painting before they passed away, in 1987 & 1988 respectively.  Sales of Cosmic ‘X’ art are expected to reach the billion dollar level in the next few years.

Art forgery is a concern of any buyer.  Sadly, it’s more common than not.  The illegal industry can be very lucrative.  Fortunately, newer analysis techniques as well as modern dating have greatly helped identify fakes.  Eric Hebburn is known as the greatest art forger of modern times and quoted, “Only the experts are worth fooling.  The greater the expert, the greater the satisfaction in deceiving him.”

With all of Jack Armstrong’s artwork, forgery is not an issue. Jack integrates his own hair, fingerprints and DNA in all of his paintings.  It’s a unique technique and guarantees a buyer is truly purchasing an authentic Jack Armstrong painting.

During 2018-2020, a stunning digital art ‘retrospective‘ of Jack’s artwork appeared every 5 minutes – 24 hours a day.  This incredible display was seen by countless people on the giant 60 X 40 foot digital screen in Times Square, located above the Ripley’s Museum in New York City.

In addition to Jack’s painting collection, his “Cosmic Starship” Harley-Davidson motorcycle is available for $50 million.  The custom-painted V-Rod Harley is an artistic masterpiece on wheels.

We mentioned Jack Armstrong personally knew Jean-Michel Basquiat, who was a Neo-Expressionist painter in the 1980’s.  In May of 2017, Basquiat’s “Untitled” painting (see below) set the record for most expensive painting ever sold at an auction by an American artist.  Including fees, the total auction price totaled $110.5 million!  Previously, Andy Warhol held that title when his “Silver Car Crash (Double Disaster)” painting sold for $105 million in 2013.  We strongly feel one of Jack’s paintings will soon break that record.

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 rarity will break every art record.

The one who acquires the Cosmic ‘X’ 25 Original’s at $500 million will in the future,  see a rapid increase in value.  In the end, the buyer will have an extremely high-end art and finance portfolio that will make everyone say, “Why didn’t we buy that?”

Armstrong says, “The transparency of buying contemporary art at the highest level is only possible today, if dealers and auction houses are removed from the transaction and high-value art is purchased directly from the artist.”

Ferrari, Lamborghini and Rolls Royce never ask a ‘car-council’ group of ‘experts’, what price they put on their cars.  We all know a Ferrari is more valuable than a Toyota.  Why?  It’s clear, the craftsmanship and rarity of the Ferrari are indisputable.  Jack continues, “I am the Ferrari of the modern art world.

In conclusion, we are aware of numerous discussions Jack is currently having with art collectors and investors.  In addition, an upcoming movie about Jack’s life is in development and will be appropriately titled – “The Last Wizard.”  Therefore, whether you are an avid collector of art or a serious investor, Jack Armstrong’s creative works should definitely be considered.

The World’s Rarest Art: $100 Million “Cosmic X 100” NFT Digital Art

A new revolution is coming or is it already here?  Three simple letters – NFT (Non-Fungible Token) are changing the world.  One of the biggest opportunities now available is from famous, modern artist Jack Armstrong.  Mr. Armstrong is excited to announce the creation of the biggest NFT art offering – the $100 Million “Cosmic X 100” NFT.

In 2021, NFTs are taking the tech world by storm.  Utilizing “blockchain” technology, NFT assets are being sold in a virtual, online marketplace.  Items consist of art, music, sports cards, as well as other collectibles.  For example, Jack Dorsey is the CEO of Twitter and Square and sold his very first Tweet as an NFT, for over $2.9 million.

In a recent article by Fortune titled – Crypto millionaires’ love of NFTs is a boon for the aging art market — but galleries may miss out – we could be experiencing firsthand, a paradigm shift in the sale of art.  All driven by the stunning NFT craze.

Jack’s “Cosmic X 100” NFT includes a collection of 100 digital images, representing all 100 of his original “Cosmic X” acrylic paintings. (Note: the above image is not the actual NFT). There are less than 30 of his original paintings available for sale.  They range from $10-$113 million each.  Therefore, the “Cosmic X 100” NFT art package of all 100 digital paintings for $100 million, is truly a bargain!

Jack stated, “NFTs are a new digital paradigm for art and the world.  The art world has moved 20 years into the future, in a virtual night with NFTs.”

“The Last Wizard” – Now Offered at $110 Million

The “Cosmic X 100” NFT is a unique, digital offering of 100 individual Armstrong “Cosmic X” images.  At only $1 million dollars each, this offering provides the buyer an opportunity to acquire all 100 “Cosmic X” Images in the world – Armstrong’s life work.

All 100 NFTs will be sold as a group for $100 million.  Therefore, they then can be auctioned, held privately, or sold privately at the discretion of the buyer – either individually or as a complete collection.  We strongly feel the upside value is tremendous!

Cosmic X 100 NFT - Jack Armstrong modern art

What is an NFT?

NFTs, or non-fungible tokens are essentially digital deeds or certificates, attached to the blockchain.  When an NFT is created, a unique identifier, typically a string of numbers and letters records the creation date.  It’s then added to a blockchain’s historical record.

The certificates are secured with blockchain technology, similar to what underpins Bitcoin and other crypto.  It’s this information that makes each NFT unique, and as such, they cannot be directly replaced by another token.

NFTs are digital certificates that authenticate a claim of ownership to an asset, and allow it to be transferred or sold.

Investing in NFTs is booming.  According to TechCrunch, NFT art marketplace SuperRare closes $9 million Series A.  Several well known names are listed as investors in SuperRare.

A quote from Jack Armstrong, “Museums will become digital art spaces as real estate and other commodities will all utilize blockchain NFT metadata to thrive in this new paradigm where everyone can participate.”

____________________________________________________________

The Value of Scarcity

Jack has said, “Everything valuable is about rarity.”  This is so true.  But the current NFT craze may be changing that logic forever.

With 100 original Cosmic ‘X’ paintings available and 100 NFTs (1 of each painting in digital image), Armstrong currently ranks #1 as the rarest post modern art in the world.  As a result, Jack Armstrong is on track to break every existing, record price in art.

The recent Beeple (Mike Winkelmann) NFT art sale in March, achieved a record $69 million.  Even though the artist’s record price for a print is only $100.  The art is titled Everydays: The First 5000 Days.  Beeple collected approximately $55 million from the sale and Christie’s auction house received about $14 million.  This milestone makes NFTs a proven portal and the future of art sales.

NFTs now make individual art pieces unique. By synergizing NFTs with the proven rarity of Cosmic ‘X’ art, this creates a huge opportunity to collect the entire Cosmic ‘X’ art portfolio.  This seems to us, the ultimate financial hedge by utilizing the world’s rarest art, with completely secure ownership on the blockchain.

It’s amazing that Vincent Van Gogh produced almost 2,000 works of art in his life, including over 900 paintings.  The Dutch Post-Impressionist painter’s most famous piece – The Starry Night is an oil on canvas.  The Starry Night‘ painting by Van Gogh would sell for more than $1 billion dollars if placed on the market today.  It is Van Gogh’s magnum opus and the same will become reality for ‘Warhol Naked‘ – the seminal painting in “Cosmic X.”

On the other hand, artist Damien Hirst has produced many thousands of factory assisted paintings & art objects already on the market & has announced he will release 10 thousand more art NFT’S this year.

In conclusion, global art consensus dictates that only exclusivity and rarity drive the top of the market.  The highest prices will be achieved by the rarest works on the market such as the $450 million Salvator Mundi  painting by Leonardo Da Vinci.  The reason Da Vinci’s art is expensive is because less than 20 originals exist in the world.

Jack Armstrong’s Early Years

Let’s step back for a moment and learn more about iconic artist, Jack Armstrong’s incredible, art career.

While living in New York City for 8 years, Jack personally knew and collaborated with iconic artists Andy WarholJean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring.  In fact, Andy actually called Jack “The Last Wizard of Art.”

Armstrong refused a solo art exhibition by Leo Castelli, who was the most powerful dealer of modern art in the world.  Castelli also represented Warhol, Lichtenstein, Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns.  As a result, he held the largest roster of famous names in art in modern history.

By refusing a solo show that would have made him known in the upper echelons of the rarified world of NY art in the 1980’s, Armstrong knew that he would have to find something new & unique.  He realized that he needed to become as radical as Vincent Van Gogh’s work was in the 1880’s. History showed that Van Gogh was shunned by the art world a century before Armstrong’s “Cosmic X“.

An interesting fact is Jack’s first million dollar painting sale was to billionaire tobacco heiress, Doris Duke.  Neither Basquiat or Warhol ever sold a million dollar painting before they passed away, in 1987 & 1988 respectively.

Over the years, he has sold paintings to many famous celebrities and wealthy people.  His most expensive “Cosmic X” sales are to a Chinese billionaire and Alice Walton (Walmart heiress).

100 Original “Cosmic X” paintings were created over a 21 year period, after Armstrong repurchased his early works (painted in NYC from 1979-1994).  When they were back in his possession, he shockingly burned them all.  He told me that nothing would stop him from becoming the rarest painter in modern art history.  The reason is due to the limited number of works available for sale and in the originality of a new style of art, that would take him almost 3 decades to discover and create.

____________________________________________________________

The “Cosmic X” Era

In 1999, Jack Armstrong founded a new style of art and named it “Cosmic X.”  He believes cosmic Extensionalism is a direct universal transcendence, in art and in the artist.

Cosmic Extensionalism “X”
https://amp.google-wiki.info/56700314/1/cosmic-extensionalism-x.html

Cosmic Extensionalism or Cosmic X is a new style of Art which was originally founded by Jack Armstrong in 1999.  Armstrong was inspired by an ethereal experience he had with the famous gemstone 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 are 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.

Highlights of Jack Armstrong’s astonishing career:

* 2010:
– In Los Angeles, Armstrong introduces the world’s first million dollar motorcycle as an ART- Object. It sells for $3 million dollars in 2012. The custom painted, Harley-Davidson motorcycle is currently on the market and now priced at $50 million.

* 2014:
– Introduce the world’s most expensive art-bicycle in Dubai.
Media coverage included:  CNN Middle-East, Huffington Post and The National News.

* 2018 – 2020:
– A 2 year digital art ‘retrospective‘ of Jack’s artwork appears for 30 seconds, every 5 minutes – 24 hours a day.  This incredible display was seen by countless people on the giant 60 X 40 Ft. digital screen in Times Square, above the Ripley’s Museum in New York City.

– Armstrong introduces the world’s most expensive boots for $6 million and the announcement becomes world fashion news.
Media coverage included: Extravaganzi, H/M/S, Luxury Launches, Money Inc. and The Richest.

Jack received additional news coverage from Jetset Magazine (“The Last Wizard” painting) and The Life of Luxury (Cosmic X book).

22 years later, Jack Armstrong’s “Cosmic X” collection has become the rarest, original modern art in the world.  Armstrong’s amazing Cosmic “X’ Triptych is currently priced at $250 million.

Jack Armstrong Cosmic X Paradigm painting
“Cosmic X Paradigm” – Now Offered at $113 Million

The remaining 25 “Cosmic X” (original) paintings are currently available with the actual DNA of Armstrong, in each painting.  His artwork and paintings are amazing, plus prices keep skyrocketing.  These stunning works were formerly held by the artist in his own private museum and are the finest original “Cosmic X” paintings in the world.

We believe that “Cosmic X” will be the next billion dollar masterpieces in the art world.  Quality and rarity throughout art history have always produced the highest prices on the secondary market.  Since the DNA of the artist is in each of the 100 “Cosmic X” acrylic paintings, their will never be a dispute with an Armstrong original.  This was the case with the $450 million ‘disputed’ Da Vinci painting, that was auctioned by Christie’s.

Recently the name value alone of the 4 richest artists in the world have guaranteed that their inflated auction prices are justified.  According to The Guardian, the 4 richest (living) artists in the world, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, M. Cattelan & Takashi Murakami all employ minimum wage art-assistants, who make every piece of art that the famous artists later personally sign. Many experts believe  that the current value of these ‘artworks’ will greatly decrease in the future as thousands upon thousands of these ‘original’ works of ‘factory’ produced art will have saturated the markets & prices will deflate & collapse.

Jack Armstrong responds, “Art becomes salvation. There are no other rules.”

Plus the Tony Lama cowboy boots are ($6 million). He also completed a custom painted, Cosmic X Love Glove  ($10 million) and Cosmic Mirage Hat ($7 million). Both pieces include gold flakes. They are a tribute to the “King of Pop” Michael Jackson, in support of his new documentary movie – premiering later this year.

In addition, a new film about Armstrong is being planned for production in 2023 and titled:

BURN THE MASTERPIECE – COSMIC ‘X’

Jack concludes, “With NFTs, every artist can disrupt the system, which is art itself.”

Jack Armstrong “Cosmic X” Triptych – The Next Big, Art World Investment

Art has long been desired for its beauty and the unique creation of each artist. But art appeals to each person in a different and personal way. Some art lovers only like the works of a single artist. While others don’t care who created it. As a result, it’s one of the facts that makes the wonderful world of art so special. In addition, the new Jack Armstrong “Cosmic X” Triptych is another huge milestone in the art industry.

We are very proud to cover modern artist Jack Armstrong in numerous, published articles. He is definitely the leader of the Cosmic Extensionalism art movement. Plus, Jack holds the world record for creating the world’s most expensive bicycle (Cosmic Bicycle), boots (Cosmic Cowboy Boots) and motorcycle (Cosmic Starship Harley).

Lucky for the art world, Jack Armstrong is not done yet. He still has plans to create the most expensive car ever – the Armstrong-Bugatti Cosmic X Art-Car. We previously reported that a world record had been set for the most expensive car. It was a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO car that sold in an auction for $70 Million. Once completed, the Armstrong-Bugatti Cosmic X Art-Car will be valued at $100 million!

Jack has stated that one of the proudest moments in his life was being dubbed “The Last Wizard of Art” by Warhol himself. Hence, what an honor that must have been for Jack to be told that in person. Brilliant and bold, this acrylic on canvas painting measures 24″W x 36″H.

But the largest and most complex painting Jack Armstrong ever painted is titled ““The Last Wizard”.” This colorful and visually brilliant, acrylic on canvas painting is 6 feet by 4 feet in size. Interestingly, it is his largest painting, but also showcases his complete mastery of the Cosmic X art form. The very one Armstrong personally founded.

Armstrong is quoted, “I feel the same way about “The Last Wizard” as Pollock must have felt about his painting “Blue Poles”, “Guernica” to Picasso, “Orange” by Rothko, and “Untitled” by Basquiat. In the future ‘The Last Wizard’ will break the records of his peers, but the power of all these larger than life works will remain as the signposts that signaled the future of art.”

The Cosmic Starship Harley motorcycle originally sold in August, 2012. This incredible, pristine Harley Davidson V-Rod motorcycle was purchased new in 2009, by Jack Armstrong. It is definitely the very first, most iconic motorcycle ever painted by any artist. As a result, to see the Cosmic Starship Harley in person, is truly a VIP experience.

Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, art is flourishing. The value of art around the world continues to skyrocket. It has clearly become a sector not just for art collectors, but also serious investors. In 2019, the global art market was valued at approximately 64.12 billion U.S. dollars. It was slightly down from previous year’s total of 67.38 billion U.S. dollars.

Art Basel - USB The Global Art Market in 2019

According to The Global Art Market in 2019 report, Art Basel and UBS, their study states that in 2019, the “Global art market reaches USD 64.1 billion.” The report states 2019 experienced a strong but slight decrease in sales over the prior year. 2019 was down $3.6 million. After surpassing the UK as the world’s second largest art market in 2018, China holds its spot at #2. The U.S. continues to be #1 with 44% of global sales by value. The top three countries continue to dominate the art industry. The U.S., China, and the UK represent an amazing 82% of total art sales by value.

Private art sales at Christie’s and Phillips dramatically increased in 2019, by 24% to $811 million and by 34% to $172 million, respectively. On the other hand, Sotheby’s saw its private sales hold steady at about $1 billion in private art sales.

Online sales accounted for 5% of dealers’ sales in 2019. 3% based on galleries’ own portals and websites. In addition, the other 2% represent sales from third-party platforms. Although still a small percent of total art sales, we expect the use of third party online platforms and direct sales by artists, to continue to grow. Consumers and investors like the fact they can purchase direct from their favorite artist, from anywhere in the world.

There is no denying that art sells and can sell for very big money! The price appreciation for many pieces of art can be quite jaw-dropping. How is art valued? That is a complex question with no easy answer. But one fact we do know. At the time of sale, art is worth what a willing seller will sell it for and a willing buyer will buy it for.

Jack Armstrong personally knew Jean-Michel Basquiat, who was a Neo-Expressionist painter in the 1980’s. In May of 2017, one his paintings landed him in the record books. His “Untitled” painting set the record for most expensive painting ever sold at an auction by an American artist. The total auction price including fees totaled $110.5 million. Andy Warhol previously held that title when his “Silver Car Crash (Double Disaster)” painting sold for $105 million in 2013.

Grégoire Billault is the head of the Contemporary Art Department at Sotheby’s New York and was quoted, “Tonight, Jean – Michel Basquiat entered the pantheon of artists whose works have commanded prices over $100 million, including Picasso, Giacometti, Bacon, and Warhol. This extraordinary canvas from 1982 has broken so many benchmarks … but those of us lucky enough to have been in it’s presence will only remember its awesome power. To think that it was created by a virtually – unknown 21- year old & was dismissed by critics, is humbling.”

In 1973, the National Gallery of Art in Australia purchased “Blue Poles” by American artist Jackson Pollock. The modern abstract painting was bought slightly over 1 Million dollars in Australian currency. Today, that painting is conservatively estimated between 300 million and possibly over 1 Billion dollars!

Orange Red Yellow” is a painting by Mark Rothko. He had social revolutionary views and believed in an artist’s total freedom of expression. His painting sold in 2012 for an eye-popping $87 million. At the time, it set a new record for post-war/contemporary art.

What is so appealing about the creative works of Cosmic artist Jack Armstrong, is the limited number of his paintings. There are only 100 “Cosmic X” paintings in existence and less than 30 are available for purchase. In addition, each acrylic on canvas painting is multi-layered, but also includes his personal touch. Interestingly, you can find Jack’s own hand prints, finger prints, plus DNA in each painting.

For those who look at art as an investment vehicle, consider this. In an article earlier this year – London Megamansion Sale Expected to Break U.K. Records at More Than £200 Million. It is now one of the world’s most expensive homes and the luxury property features 45 rooms. Think about it …. you can either own a $261 million (£200 million) mega mansion in London or invest in 3 pieces of the World’s Rarest Art, that can increase in value 10 times or more in the near future. It seems like an obvious choice!

We strongly feel that the creative collection of Cosmic Extensionalism art will definitely continue to rise in value. Therefore, whether you are a serious collector of art or an avid investor, Jack Armstrong’s creative works should definitely be on your radar. Will you be the owner of the Jack Armstrong “Cosmic X” Triptych?

Bartels’ Harley-Davidson

Bill Bartels said; “Harley Davidson has been in business since 1903, & yet just ten years ago the most famous motorcycle ever made (The Cosmic Harley) had it’s very own Red Carpet Gala Event right here at Bartels, that has rivaled almost all the movie premieres in CA, which is a most extraordinary feat.”

Continuing, Bartels states, “Armstrong’s motorcycle is now iconic worldwide & he was a visionary to have imagined that his creation would one day be more valuable than most art museum, masterpiece paintings.”

Ferraro 250 GTO

What makes the Cosmic Starship Harley Davidson motorcycle so unique, is the seamless blend of art and transportation. Hence, the new owner will have a unique opportunity to own a “one-off masterpiece.” Consider in 2018, New World Record – 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO Sells In Auction for $70 Million. This incredible 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO sold privately. It is just one of literally thousands of classic Ferrari’s currently for sale in the world.

Of all the 250 GT Ferrari cars manufactured, there are currently only 39 available in the world. Therefore, we predict that the prices on the 250GT will climb to over $100 million. Also, this rapid price appreciation is a good barometer for what will happen with the Cosmic Harley.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The Harley Davidson V-Rod ceased production in 2017. It was developed by Porsche Engineering & Erick Buell Racing. Due to the rarity of the Cosmic Harley-V-Rod, this one-off, iconic motorcycle will break all future records!

Mr. Armstrong told me, “Every 100 years, a master creator arrives & teaches the entire art world, that the accepted concepts of what is possible to achieve in modern art is in-correct.”

We firmly believe his quote actually describes him.  With only 100 Cosmic “X” Paintings in existence, Jack will eventually dominate all of the top spots in modern art history.  As a result, his amazing collection will become the rarest, most sought after art in the world.

“The ones who walk in light,
find endless love is a pathway,
to endless dimensions & portals
of Immortality.”

Ultimate “Cosmic X” Art Synergy – Jack Armstrong & Jaime Carbo Collaboration

What happens when Jack Armstrong, the “Best Modern American Artist” collaborates with Jaime Carbo, the “Best Post Pop Artist in Mexico“?

Answer: The intense colors literally explode off the canvas!  The combination of American artist Jack Armstrong & Mexican artist Jaime Carbo is a Cosmic X Post Pop Art synergy that can only be found in 2 modern paintings in the world.

With Armstrong’s art prices beginning at $10 million today, the unique collaboration with Jaime Carbo allows one to own an Armstrong “Cosmic X” painting for an amazing price.  In addition, this will catapult Carbo’s own work into the million dollar plus level, per piece.

https://www.thelifeofluxury.com/christmas-2021-cosmic-x-masterpiece-art-sale-6-paintings-600m/

Jack Armstrong collaborated with his favorite modern painter in Mexico.  He states, “Carbo is a modern Mexican Cosmic Art Master. His work is unlike any other and will be in museums worldwide, in the near future.”

Armstrong personally owns 19 paintings by Jaime Carbo. He conceived, commissioned and painted on two of them.  Here is an overview of each painting:

Faros-Revolucion - Jaime Carbo Jack Armstrong.jpg

1. The FAROS (Cosmic “Revolution”) painting by Carbo/Armstrong.
About 7 years ago, this painting was commissioned from Carbo by Armstrong for only $20K.  Jack also painted the Cosmic X background on it.  Plus, he signed the back in gold spray paint with his own fingerprints in the paint.  It is the finest modern Mexican painting by any artist in the last 70 years, including Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, or Tamayo.

“Revolution” is a ‘Cosmic Mexican Masterpiece’ and signifies the revolutionary way the Mexican Culture is thriving in the 21st century. As a result, the country is becoming a powerhouse with some of the most ‘Revolutionary’ new art in the world.

It is Carbo’s largest and most extraordinary painting at 8 Ft X 4 Ft, acrylic on wood.  The painting is museum quality for any “Post Pop Art” with Jack’s “COSMIC X” additions.  It’s almost a surreal cosmic “POINTALISM” like George Seurat – https://masterpiecesociety.com/georges-seurat/

The Silver Shaman on the Cosmic X Universal Surfboard in the center of Revolution, signifies the intense Cosmic winds that arrive in Art & Life that create everything good in the world.

‘Faros’ is one of the oldest cigarettes in Mexico history.  It is synonymous with “Revolution & Fire In the Mind & the Soul.”  Therefore, Jack and Jaime Carbo used it to create a magical “natural” fiery revolution for “cosmic thinking” and cosmic Art.  The painting is simply spectacular and the colors are quite stunning.

Faros was smoked by Pancho Villa & Emiliano Zapata during the Mexican Revolution. Therefore, virtually confirming Faros as the symbolic ‘Fire of the Revolution.’
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pancho_Villa
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emiliano_Zapata

Jaime Carbo states, “The Revolution painting I think will one day be in one of Mexico City’s magnificent Modern Museo’s of Art, & if it somehow ends up opposite a Frida Kahlo, in the Museo Soumaya, founded by Carlos Slim, Mexico’s richest man, it would be in very good company.”
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Museo_Soumaya (photo above)

Jack believes it’s the only major painting in the world featuring Faros, as a symbol of the modern spark of Revolution.  Villa & Zapata are perfect metaphors for today’s demonstrations worldwide, as both were the major champions of the common people in Mexico.

No doubt, Carbo will become world re-known, when ‘Revolution’ is eventually exhibited in a museum. Now you can own it!

Price: $20 Million

Cosmic Girl Love painting- by modern artists Jaime Carbo & Jack Armstrong.jpg
2. THE “COSMIC GIRL” painting by Carbo/Armstrong.
This painting was commissioned, co-painted and signed by Jack in gold paint on the back of the canvas.  The painting is 40 x 40 inches and acrylic on canvas.

According to Jack, it reminds him of a cosmic “LICHTENSTEIN” painting, along with the “COSMIC X POINTALISM” backgrounds created by Jack.

“Cosmic Girl” is spectacular and jumps quite literally off of the canvas.

Price: $10 Million

—————————————————–

Jaime Carbo is very famous in Mexico.  His many hand painted murals can be found all over Mexico.  In fact, Carbo has created artwork for the government in Athens, Greece.  Plus, he’s done statues in both China and Mexico.

Both of these stunning and creative paintings are deeply textured and colored.  In fact, either would make the perfect addition to anyone’s art collection.  As a result, the collaboration between Armstrong and Carbo on both paintings, make them extremely rare in the world of modern art.

You can read the interview with Jaime Carbo in “Art & Museum Magazine UK” – Autumn 2018 edition (pg 45-46).  Both this article and the one below with Jack Armstrong, was written by Derek Cully. He discovered Damien Hirst and gave him his first two exhibitions in London.
https://issuu.com/familyofficeelitemagazine/docs/am-autumn-18-single

Art & Museum Magazine

Jack states, “I commissioned both works 7 years ago for my private collection and collaborated with Carbo on both paintings.  I am proud to be associated with a modern master of motion, light, & cosmic energy.  He understands that everything I believe in my “Cosmic X” Philosophy, he also believes, & incorporates into his magical work, with color exploding off his canvases.”
https://www.thelifeofluxury.com/excitement-is-building-for-the-cosmic-x-book-by-jack-armstrong/

Jack continues, “In Mexican Art, he is at a level all his own, with no peers, in sight.  He can only be explained as this centuries Tamayo.”

Armstrong personally knew and collaborated with iconic artists Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat.  Jack has told me that one of the proudest moments in his life was when Andy Warhol named him The Last Wizard of art.  His artwork and paintings are amazing and prices keep skyrocketing.
https://www.thelifeofluxury.com/cosmic-x-experience-from-artist-jack-armstrong-comes-to-new-york-city/

“The Last Wizard” label has now become the title of the upcoming movie about Jack’s life.  It is scheduled to be released later this year.  In addition, Armstrong created just 100 “Cosmic X” paintings and only less than 30 remain for sale.

Here’s another example how art continues to appreciate in value.  Ken Griffin is the founder of Citadel, and recently purchased a contemporary painting by American artist Jean Michel Basquiat … for an eye-popping $100 million!

In the 21st Century, Jack Armstrong Remains in a Singular Paradigm of his Own Unique Creation

In another exclusive interview with world renowned, Cosmic-X artist Jack Armstrong, he discusses the meteoric rise of art. It seems like new records are being set on a regular basis in the world of art.  We strongly believe Jack Armstrong’s name will soon be among the list of famous artists of all time.

Cosmic X artist Jack Armstrong states, “Every 100 years, a master creator arrives & teaches the entire art world, that the accepted concepts of what is possible to achieve in modern art is in-correct.”

https://www.thelifeofluxury.com/christmas-2021-cosmic-x-masterpiece-art-sale-6-paintings-600m/

“In the 20th century, Picasso, Pollock, & Warhol completely dominated each of their era’s in modern art before Jean-Michel Basquiat arrived on the art scene, homeless, & insolvent, yet still able to break all the established rules of the art game, becoming a new kind of modern artist, more hip than Warhol, conforming to no one, who said; screw the established system, & almost immediately took Andy’s crown.” Basquiat’s work valued at $110M, now dominates all other American Artists except Jack Armstrong.

Now in the 21st century, Armstrong remains in a cosmically cool singular paradigm of his own unique creation. With his 100 Cosmic ‘X’ Paintings, he will eventually dominate all the top spots in modern art history – as the rarest most sought after art in the world.

The price point of $1B dollars per painting is as easily achievable for Armstrong’s future as the last Leonardo Da Vinci painting was for Sotheby’s, when it was sold for almost $500M even with a disputed art pedigree.

Before the Da Vinci sale, not *one art *expert *believed $1/2 a billion for a single painting was possible. The same will be true for Armstrong when he sells either privately for $1 billion per piece or reaches $1B at an auction.

Warhol Naked painting - Jack Armstrong
“Warhol Naked” – Price: $110 million

Armstrong continues, “The entire world will then know what many inside the art industry fear. That one singularly unique artist with high profile private collectors is able to entirely change & dominate a game where dealers, museums & auction houses have traditionally made rules that all modern artists still believe they must obey.”

Armstrong does not give his client list or provide past sales. He says, “Does Ferrari tell Rolls Royce how to make one-off Ultra-Rare ‘Bespoke’ Cars & then tell them what their price should be? How dare anyone tell me how to price something so rare. Remember that less than 100 people on earth, can ever have a chance to own one.”

When something is so rare the word ‘priceless’ is the (only) word that can describe it. It means that even $1 Billion dollars per painting will sound like a bargain price for Armstrong originals in the near future.

So for 2020, the preview for Armstrong’s prices are already reaching the $110M dollar level and rising.  For one of the few Armstrong pieces still available for private sale, even $110M dollars is a very small price to pay for a masterpiece.

Armstrong’s “The Last Wizard” painting (featured photo) measures 72″W x 48″H.  This stunning, acrylic painting is Jacks’ largest and most complex. It’s not only his grandest painting in scale, but also created in the complete mastery of the “Cosmic X” art form that he founded in 1999.

Jack Armstrong Completes “Steve McQueen Le Mans” Replacement Painting – $110M

Renowned “Cosmic X” artist Jack Armstrong, has just completed a painting to replace the $13M “Steve McQueen Le Mans” painting stolen in Dallas last year. The new one is titled, Cosmic ‘X’ Paradigm and is now available for sale at $110 million.

The news of the theft was first published in May 2018 by The Hollywood TimesIconic $13M Painting ‘Steve McQueen Le Mans’ Stolen In Dallas and shocked the art industry. While on loan prior to a celebrity exhibition in New York City, the amazing painting has reported to be stolen from a private home in Texas. To date, this crime still remains unsolved.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jack Armstrong created it to honor Steve McQueen’s popular 1971 film Le Mans. The legendary film star was known for performing his own stunt driving in the movie.

Armstrong said that McQueen’s performance in both Bullitt & Le Mans inspired the painting. Jack first met Steve McQueen in 1977 at Musso & Frank Grill in Hollywood, California. It’s the oldest restaurant in Hollywood and celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. Like many Hollywood celebrities, Musso Franks was a favorite eating establishment of McQueen.

Jack recounts, “I spent over an hour with Steve & told him I planned to one day create the most expensive motorcycle & most valuable art car in the world. He said Kid, New York City is the right place for you to be seen. Keep in touch with me. If they turn out great, I might be interested in them myself. Right after meeting Steve, I planned my NYC move thanks to his encouragement.”

Widely known as “The King of Cool“, Steve McQueen personally encouraged Armstrong’s journey to New York City, where he later was associated with famous artists Andy Warhol and Jean Michel Basquiat.

Jack said, “Talking to the biggest movie star in the world seemed completely ‘cosmic’ for an art kid born in Kansas and grew up in Omaha. My ‘Steve McQueen Le Mans’ painting was created in my ‘Cosmic X’ style of art. It’s the only piece of mine dedicated to a Hollywood personality.”

He was asked about the stunning theft of the McQueen painting last year. Jack comments, “Art at the Cosmic X level has a universal appeal. For the person that desires it above anything else, if they cannot afford it, theft is a result. I do not think the painting will be recovered as 7 other examples of my works have been taken & never found. Perhaps, I will simply create 7 new pieces some day so there will be 100 Cosmic X originals, once again.”

As a result, to continue honoring Steve McQueen, Jack decided to replace the original $13M “Steve McQueen Le Mans” painting.

“The painting is a direct inspiration from my universal Cosmic ‘X’ book series. It includes a metaphysical cosmic realization in the art that details humanity’s future paradigm.” Cosmic ‘X’ Paradigm, the final Armstrong Cosmic ‘X’ masterpiece, is 24×36 acrylic on canvas. It is (1) of only 5 Cosmic X paintings now priced at $100M or above.”

“Warhol Naked” – Now Offered at $110 Million

As reported in a previous article – https://www.thelifeofluxury.com/jack-armstrong-cosmic-x-art-the-next-big-investment-opportunity/ Jack Armstrong personally knew Jean-Michel Basquiat, who was a Neo-Expressionist painter in the 1980’s. In May of 2017, his “Untitled” painting set the record for most expensive painting ever sold at an auction by an American artist. The total Sotheby’s auction price including fees totaled $110.5 million. Purchased by Yusaku Maezawa, this billionaire is an avid art collector and online fashion mogul.

Armstrong says, “Cosmic X Paradigm, answers the cosmic solution to reality vs infinity, (thru alternate universal existence) which transcend standard religion & philosophical thinking,  taking the viewer visually to an individual cosmic enlightenment with cosmic ‘X’ as both stimuli that transcends art & our imagined state of reality.”
https://www.nbcnews.com/mach/features/are-we-living-simulated-universe-n713031

Jack concludes, “It now seems appropriate that my last painting depicts humanity’s golden future symbolized in ‘cosmic x art.”

In addition, Jack Armstrong recently introduced two incredible pieces of art made with gold and now available for sale.  They were created to honor Michael Jackson and the upcoming documentary film “Mirroring Michael Jackson“, premiering in August.
