American artist Jeff Koons is known for his provocative and often controversial work that has challenged the boundaries of a traditional understanding of art. His approach is characterised by an eclectic use of media, ranging from sculpture and painting to photography and performance. Koons’s iconic sculptures of everyday objects, which include flower bouquets and balloon animals, playfully deal with consumer culture, mass media, and the human condition. Koons makes frequent use of industrial materials and techniques, blurring the line between art and mass production. The juxtaposition of pop-cultural iconography and classical genres creates a dynamic interplay between high and low art. Koons's works continually raise questions about the nature of art itself and the role of the artist.
