“At Work” with Jeff Koons

Artinfo has an interesting article that gives a insider look into Jeff Koons’ studio and more importantly, some insight into the man himself. The article was written by Samantha Peale who worked under Koons as an assistant. Her story definitely gave us more of an appreciation for Koons creative process and his art. A short excerpt: Koons had a sixth sense about materials no one had invented and about ways to use them no one had conceived. Laser-cut stainless steel coated with a transparent hologram […]
