Born in York, Pennsylvania, in 1955, Jeff Koons is without doubt one of the most important living artists. He is one of the few to have captured the essence of the century's avant-garde trends, notably Pop Art.
In his hands, even the most familiar objects transcend the everyday to become veritable icons that manifest the essence of American popular culture. Yet more broadly, there are positive messages of acceptance and humanity, themes that resonate universally. His work is exhibited worldwide and is part of numerous public and private collections.
