Since March 11, 2021, from the third step of the pedestal of the most expensive living artists, we see not the mastodon Gerhard Richter, but a young guy of forty with the face of Garik “Bulldog” Kharlamov. His name is Mike Winkelmann. The son of an electrician and a social worker from a small town in Wisconsin. Formerly an IT guy and web designer. And now the famous artist Beeple.
