Jeff Koons Sculptures

The work and career of artist Jeff Koons explores the meaning of art and spectacle in a media-saturated era, while adopting an aesthetic that accentuates the consumer culture that emerged at the time. Koons’ work undermines the division between ‘good taste’ and ‘bad taste’, mixing ‘high’, ‘low’ culture and kitsch. His works (from the 1980s to the present) span a wide spectrum of media and techniques – from his pop art sculptures depicting everyday objects from balloon animals to teddy bears.
