Jeff Koons, born in 1955, is one of the most famous American contemporary artists. He is an incredible chronicler of the contemporary world, and a perfectionist artist obsessed with proposing an art accessible to everyone. He has blended the concerns and methods of Pop, Conceptual, and appropriation art with popular culture to create his own unique iconography.
Jeff Koons created the Balloon Venus for Dom Pérignon in 2013. Inspired by a tiny Palaeolithic figurine discovered in Austria, the Balloon Venus is an adaptation of Jeff Koons’ monumental sculpture and proposes a new kind of idol: a modern day goddess of love who embraces in her reflective curves.
