Jeff Koons has been called mean, banal, carnal and a hack and yet has his work has been so widely popular during his own lifetime that its sales have broken records. His art has appeared everywhere from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, as a huge silver balloon, to replacing the tree in Rockefeller Center- a two story terrier covered in flowers.
Born in Pennsylvania, Koons and his industrious studio calls New York City home. His works are regularly displayed in the city at both his gallery, Gagosian, and major museums, such at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Through the end of April 2011, catch his Orange Pooch in the lobby of the Seagram Building in midtown, NYC.
