Creative Sculpture: Jeff Koons is a controversial artist whose earlier sculpture of a 10 Feet Balloon Dog fetched him $58 million in 2013 and now he is back again with a realistic play doh sculpture. It took him almost a decade to finish the colorful 10 foot tall sculpture. All the parts of the play doh sculpture were painted individually with aluminium as the base and were fitted in a away they don’t touch each other. The cracks and other imprints on the play doh was made using latest technologies and since they were hand made, it was the toughest part of his work.
Jeff Koons drew inspiration from his toddler son’s creation using the original play doh. His toddler son Ludwig. “created a haystack shaped pile of play-doh. Koons recalls his son saying, ‘Dad!’ I turned, ‘What?’ And he went, ‘Voila!’ in front of the mound of play-doh,” Koons explained to the New Yorker in 2007. “And he was so proud. And I looked at it, and I thought, you know this is really what I try to do every day as an artist, to make objects that you can’t make any judgements about.”
The 10 foot tall play doh sculpture will be open for public viewing on May 17, which is before the auction at Christie’s in New York’s Rockefeller Center from April 13 to April 19, April 28 to May 5 and one last time before the sale, from May 12 to May 17. So don’t miss the exciting opportunity to check out the latest work of Jeff Koons.
