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!
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 ““ 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 Warhol, Jean-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”
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:
– 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.
– 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).
“Warhol Naked” – Now Offered at $110 Million
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.
“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.”
