Lot description
A limited edition photo-litho by Jeff Koons of his mixed media sculpture "Radial Champs". One of 9000 prints originally created for the collector's edition of G.O.A.T - GREATEST OF ALL TIME: A Tribute to Mohammad Ali by Taschen.

Neo-Pop artist Jeff Koons (American, b.1955) inspires conflicted reactions to his over-sized sculptures of banal—and sometimes shocking—objects; some consider his work art historically significant, others view him as an attention-seeker who panders to the high art world. Educated at the Art Institute of Chicago and the University of Maryland, he was initially supported by his career on Wall Street. By the early 1980s, Koons was able to found a studio staffed by assistants. He quickly cultivated a media persona by hiring image consultants and placing strategic advertisements in high class art publications; his scandalous marriage to and subsequent divorce from the Hungarian-Italian pornstar Ciccolina also brought much public attention. Most famous for enlarged objects such as Puppy and his huge sculptures of inflated balloons, Koons also works in series of paintings, prints, and collage, stating he attempts “to make a body of work that anybody could enjoy.”
