About Jeff KoonsView Profile »
Jeffrey "Jeff" Koons (American, b. 1955) is an artist who lives and works in New York City. Widely recognized for his reproductions of mundane objects, most notably, large-scale balloon animals in stainless steel, his work explores issues that span sex, desire, race, gender, celebrity, media, commerce, and fame. Koons studied painting at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the Maryland Institute College of Art. After his formal studies, he moved to New York and worked at the membership desk of the Museum of Modern Art while establishing himself as an artist. Presently, his “Balloon Dog (Orange)” holds the record for the most expensive artwork ever sold by an artist, which went for an unprecedented $58.4 Million at Christie’s Post-War and Contemporary Art Evening Sale in 2013.Interested in consigning works by Jeff Koons?
