About the Artwork

Jeff Koons playfully tests the boundaries of commerce, celebrity, banality and pleasure. In his hands even the most familiar, everyday items transcend commonality to become true icons that manifest the essence of American popular culture.

"Balloon Dog is a very optimistic piece, it is a balloon that a clown would have maybe twist for you at a birthday party.  But at the same time there's the profoundness of an archaic sculpture.  The piece has an interior life while the reflective exterior surface affirms the viewer through their reflection.”

Jeff Koons

Balloon Dog (Yellow) is the latest edition to a series of limited edition artworks by Jeff Koons, referencing his iconic, monumental sculpture of the same name from his highly acclaimed Celebration Series (1994) of five coloured sculptures in red, magenta, blue, orange and yellow. The series evolved from his desire to recreate the ecstatic experiences of a child's enjoyment of the world through universal signifiers representing birthday parties and festive events.

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.
