Hi there! I am a freelance writer who lives and breaths content on a daily basis. I consider myself to be a living paradox. An old soul trapped in a modern world. A self-proclaimed hopeless romantic and a professional over-thinker. I can't start anything unless I have my coffee. Writing has been and always will be my way of calming the storms in my heart and mind.

eBay.com is an American multinational online buyer-to-buyer corporation which is headquartered in San Jose, California. It was first created in 1995 and since then continuously gained notable success in the online market world. It has actually become a multi-billion dollar business with operations localized to over thirty countries. eBay.com  is actually an online auction and shopping website wherein people and businesses buy and sell products and or services worldwide. In addition to its auction-style selling, the website itself has expanded to ‘buy it now’ standard shopping, online classified advertisements, online ticket trading, online money transfer, and other efficient services.

Millions and thousands of collectibles, decorations, appliances, computers, furniture, equipment, vehicles, and other miscellaneous stuff are listed, bought, or sold daily on eBay. In the year 2006, eBay has launched its new category of Business and Industrial, breaking into the industrial surplus business as well.

In general, anything and everything can be auctioned on this site as long as it is of legal terms and it does not violate the eBay Prohibited and Restricted Items policy. Services and other intangibles can also be sold here. This was also the sole reason why eBay has caught itself into a grave controversy when a certain item was put up for a bid, item such as kidneys was once put up for auction on eBay.

Anything could be sold on eBay, as mentioned before, and so people have come to ask for certain products that sold well on that site like for instance, what is the most costly work of art sold on eBay.

Most of the time, aspiring artists or more specifically painters use eBay to try to crawl their way to the top of the list of the most costly art sold on eBay. Not only does this give them money in return for their artworks, but it also gives them the credibility and popularity they simply want and needed to be a renowned and famous artist or painter.

The most expensive art sold on eBay was given at an astonishing and overwhelming price of $21, 000,000.00 is the Modern Art Painting entitled “The Blow Job” by artist Martin Arts.

This painting by the very young and aspiring artist Marin Arts has been sold at a very pricey cost and has successfully crowned his masterpiece as the most costly art sold on the said website. Although it may seem simple and plain to some, to others, it is the most incredible thing.


The artist’s architectural and cityscape painting was a style of modern expressionism. It was painted using oil on a canvas size that is 26 inches by 16 inches big. He painted this artwork in the United States of America.

What Do I Think

The artist expresses his beliefs and thoughts about Alexandre Dumas’ quote through this painting, “There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness.”
