Jeff Koons is an American artist who is best known for his large modern sculptures that sell for millions of dollars. His works are of simple things like balloon figures, flowering large-scale animals and inflatables. The art world is in two minds about Koons… on the one hand, he is seen as a visionary creative who is pushing the commercial boundaries of popular art while others view his work as superficial and cynical. I fell in love with Koons work when his gigantic Puppy sculpture was on display at the MCA in 1995 and then I got to see it again in Bilbao in 1999. Why can’t we make sculptures of puppies and balloon animals that mean something too? More art… less judgement. I adore Koons’s balloon animals and if I had millions of dollars, I would have one in my house/garden ♥
