The CosmicStar Cruiser is the world’s most expensive ARTBike

The award for the most expensive ARTBike in the world was being held by the $500,000 bike created by Damien Hirst until recently. It was “stolen” by the wonderful creation of another well known artist, Jack Armstrong. He has dubbed his work the CosmicStar Cruiser ARTBike and it’s now the world’s most expensive ARTBike, valued at a mind-boggling $1 million.

He has crafted the piece on a SOLE beach cruiser made in Los Angeles, during a 6 month period. The SOLE bike is as functional as it is expensive and was initially acquired by Armstrong at a wrestling match with Kelsey Fisher, another American artist. Following his achievement, he started repainting it in his “cosmic extensionalism” art style.

We also need to point out the fact that both men worked on it, Jack Armstrong and Kelsey Fisher. It really is a genuine artwork, being garnished with unique colors, cosmic symbols and words written in paint.

It will be reportedly unveiled at the Palm Springs Convention Center, Palm Springs, in Canada, on the 8th of December. The same artist will also be lifting the curtains of his latest unpublished painting, the “Future Magic”, a $6 million piece, as the ARTBike’s backdrop.

    the 1/2 MILLION DOLLAR HIRST BIKE WAS MADE FROM THE WINGS OF 500 BUTTERFLIES WHO WERE KILLED AND THEIR WINGS STUCK ON A BIKE FRAME. HIRST’S Assistants did the work as usual for Damien. A bike, but “not” art.

    The ARTBike created by Kelsey Fisher and I, combined Fisher’s ART Fusion style of painting with my cosmic extensionalism school of art. The collaboration explodes with cosmic symbols, bold textures that scream off the work. We hope to inspire artists around the world to experiment and create new and unique work never seen before. In the early 80’s Warhol and Jean Michel Basquiat did several collaborations In NYC. We celebrate artist’s working together on special projects, as the POWER of the Artist’s Work, “IS” their Destiny.
