Jeffrey “Jeff” Koons was born in 1955 in York, Pennsylvania. He is known as one of the most influential contemporary American artists, as his work of balloon models of mundane objects have been celebrated by some, yet criticized as “kitsch art” by others.
Although Koons is primarily known for his sculptures, he is also involved with other medias, such as painting and printmaking.
Koons’ work has achieved a world record of largest sum of money collected for a piece by a living artist. His Balloon flower (Magenta) was sold at Christie's London for £12,921,250 in June 2008.
