The rarest ones, most

The rarest ones, most reflective of the artist's life and style, become famous. When you say the words, Van Gogh, you think of Starry Night, or Yellow, Sun Flowers. The art would not exist without Vincent's creation. But Vincent would not have existed, as we now understand him, had he not created the seminal piece of his "new" style of art, which is his masterpiece, "Starry Night." Today, at auction it would bring 1 Billion Dollars or more, because it is the painting that most closely defines and identifies the artist in the art he created. There are many rare things in the world, that have rarity yet are similar to other things of the same type. My art and my life have only one meaning, and it can be discovered my passion for my work, which is reflected in 50

my writing about my art. My art is not rare because there are few things like it available on the market, but is rare because there is nothing else on earth that is like it. When I’m dead and when my art will sell for 1 Billion Dollars each, for Warhol Naked, The Cosmic Firebird, or the Cosmic Harley, people that want to own a piece of the artist's soul, who created the masterpiece, will gladly exchange money for that rare thing that can never be duplicated, the original masterpiece that is most closely associated with the artist in question, and the pieces that will always reign supreme at auction. These 3 art objects, will continue to define my art and my life's work, "Cosmic Extensionalism," long after I am gone, and my triptych is written about. If I had not imagined and then created these 3 objects, I strongly feel, my work as an artist would still be unknown, as my connection with cosmic energy, had not been completely realized, before 2001, and my creation of Warhol Naked. In the time period of 2001-2010, every great painting including the Cosmic Motorcycle, was produced. The Cosmic Firebird Painting Created in 2007, my middle period of Cosmic Extensionalism, for which I later produced 2 Ballets done for film, is the culmination of everything I realized in my cosmic connection to the universal magic in art. It is nothing like any painting, before or after, and that is what places it exactly in the same category as Warhol Naked. Indeed there will never be anything like either one of these originals. The third and final piece of the puzzle of my Art Triptych, symbolizing the completion of my cosmic art journey of discovery, and celebration, happened; when the painting became alive in the lights of hundreds of photographers from around the world. The most iconic art motorcycle in history, the "Cosmic" Harley Davidson, literally came to life on Oct. 21, 2010, In Los Angeles. It has never been duplicated by any artist, or any corporation, and it will remain iconic as long as people continue to value original concepts that were unique, in capturing the attention of the entire world, and not singularly only the artistic world. I believe the bold and exotic coloring and shading of paint used in the creation of these three individual pieces, actually become one “A Triptych”, when viewed with the Harley in the center of the other originals. By channeling this unlimited cosmic energy into my work, and in creating cosmic extensions inside my art, is the true foundation of cosmic extensionalism, a kind of art magic, that Warhol recognized when he said my work was more alchemy than art, thus dubbing me, “The Last Wizard of art," in 1985. I had been experimenting with this energy and magic my entire life until it formed into a cognitive reality late in 1999, with "The Cosmic Style of Art," that I am known for today. Vincent Van Gogh painted for the last ten years of his life and died at 37 years old. His seminal paintings were done in the last two years of his life. My work has taken over forty years to reach my peak. The best were created between 2000-2010. Exactly ten years, like Vincent. "These 3 pieces are the rarest in symbolic "essence," of art and artist, and each contain the meaning inside Cosmic Extensionalism Art, 1. Imagined, 2. Defined, and 3. Created, in the 21st Century. When you see them, you will believe in them also. This is my Triptych of Cosmic Art, and its Extensionalism into the cosmic magic, discovered in my work, by Warhol.
