Jeff Koons is an American artist who first rose to prominence in the 1980s. He is usually considered to be part of the Neo-pop movement, a postmodern art movement heavily influenced by pop art. One of Jeff Koons’ signature tropes involves sculptures in the style of balloon animals, something which he started doing in the 1970s, most famously casting an inflatable rabbit in stainless steel in 1986, creating one of his most iconic artworks, known as Rabbit. Jeff Koons as worked with a number of different mediums throughout his career, often using porcelain to create a number of unique sculptures, including three life size sculptures of Michael Jackson. As well as this, the artist has worked with bronze casted sculptures, paintings and collage. Koons set up a factory-like studio in Soho, New York, where over 30 of his assistants would work on various different aspects of his art, always being careful to ensure the pieces being created looked as if they had been crafted by a single hand. Despite the celebration of kitsch that his work represents, Jeff Koons has always rejected any suggestion of irony, claiming his work seeks to reject all hidden meanings, with him seeing no gap between what the work is and what it is perceived to be.
