This week, Italian painter Amedeo Modigliani’s Nu Couché sold at auction for $170 million, making it the sixth most expensive painting ever sold in human history. Good for him, but, we at Desert Bus think we might have him beat! So, for our first LIVE auction of DB9, we bring you Composition in Chroma Green No. 1 (acrylic on canvas) by Graham Stark!

Stark’s magnum opus is a masterpiece of abstract expressionism. The simple but purposeful brushstrokes of the acid green central form seem to belie a hidden meaning; as if that particular shade were somehow the key to an unseen image-within-the-image. The, well, stark use of colour evokes comparison to masters of the form including Rothko, Mondrian, and, most of all, Ross.

Auction goes live momentarily so get those bids ready! Sign up for a donor account and link it to your Twitch account! It just takes a few seconds and that’s all you need to get in the action!
