You Can (and Should) Buy This $38,500 Christina Aguilera ‘Bionic’ Oil Painting
“I can proudly say [Bionic] was ahead of its time, to be honest. It wasn’t so commercialized. You had to really be a music lover, be a true fan of music and the love of being open to really appreciate that record. It’s just a special piece in my body of work that will forever live on. The older the record gets the more people will come to appreciate it actually and check it out.” – Christina Aguilera, Billboard, 2012
Calling all fighters, bobbleheads, birds of prey and, above all, true lovers of art: 26-year-old Greek artist Manos Nanouris has crafted a gigantic tribute to the generation-defining 2010 record that brought us “Not Myself Tonight,” “Sex For Breakfast,” “I Hate Boys” and “Desnudate” — and it can be yours immediately for the bargain Buy It Now price of just $38,500.
Much like the original Bionic cover, the oil painting — which measures over seven feet tall and is listed under “Surrealism” (“Ahead Of Its Time, To Be Honest” is oddly not an option) — features a half-mechanized Xtina and her signature Blu-Red LipSense coated lips peering out at her fans.
According to the eBay listing, the one-of-a-kind painting is “surrounded of screws and accesories of old radios, television, music systems ect. in relief!! Amazing and original sculpture that can be placed in a business office or elsewhere.”
A business office or elsewhere! Just imagine: The “Woohoo (feat. Nicki Minaj)” muse staring down at you and your co-workers while you discuss Q4 earnings in the conference room. That’s one way to guarantee you’ll forget about your Monday Morning!
“The photos of our pieces of Art do not come close to doing them justice,” the description reads, which isn’t exactly true: This is actually a massive victory in the ongoing #JusticeForBionic movement.
This piece surely won’t be on the market for long, so act quickly: The painting’s value is already increasing…and it just keeps getting better.
