Jeff Koons American, b. 1955


Working with seductive commercial materials (such as the high-chromium stainless steel of his unique large-scale Balloon Dogs, or his vinyl inflatables), Koons turns banal objects into icons of high art. Famous for creating large Balloon Dogs in Blue, Magenta, Red, Orange, and Yellow, Koons produces sculpture that seems to defy gravity and appear weightless. His “Orange Balloon Dog” sold at Christie’s in November 2013 for a record high of $58.4 million, becoming the most expensive work of art by a living artist ever sold at auction.
