About the Artwork

SALES START ON JULY 5, 2017

This set of Jeff Koons´ Balloon Animals includes the newest limited editions made of highly reflective porcelain. Incorporating the vocabulary of his iconic Celebration sculptures, Balloon Rabbit, Balloon Monkey and Balloon Swan marked a spectacular new chapter in Jeff Koons’s oeuvre.

“One of the things that I’m most proud of is making work that lets viewers not feel intimidated by art, but feel that they can emotionally participate in it through their senses and their intellect and be fully engaged”. 

Jeff Koons

Jeff Koons has been interested in cultural subject matter with widespread appeal throughout his career. It is, therefore, fitting that the rabbit, the monkey and the swan have been recurring motifs in his body of work. These subjects have captured artist’s fascination throughout history, serving as allegorical figures for universal themes such as the pursuit of pleasure, sexuality and innocence. Koons merges these typically contradictory concepts through the reduction of the subjects to their most essential forms. 

About the Artist

Jeff Koons (born 1955) playfully tests the boundaries of commerce, celebrity, banality and pleasure. He turns banal commercial or everyday objects into art icons by using seductive materials, a shift of scale and a contextual displacement.

About the printing Technique

Innovations and developments in classical printing techniques have allowed artists to create limited Editions also in three dimensional shapes.
