Jeff Koons (born 1955) is widely regarded as one of the most influential and controversial artists of the post-war era. His universally recognizable style is a mix of surrealism, dada, and pop, resulting in bold paintings and monumental sculptures that comment on contemporary culture. Koons draws attention to the continuity of images throughout time, merging art historical references with images of everyday objects and engaging the viewer in a metaphysical dialogue with cultural history.
Koons’ first solo exhibition took place at the New Museum in New York in 1980. Since then he has been the focus of exhibitions around the world, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; San Francisco Museum of Art; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao; Fondation Beyeler, Basel; Château de Versailles; Victoria and Albert Museum, London; and the Chosun Ilbo Art Museum, Seoul among others.
Jeff Koons began collaborating with Two Palms in 2016 and has since made two print series, Gazing Ball and Antiquity, with the studio.
