Now, love him or hate him, fans of the contemporary art giant’s sculptural works have a (relatively speaking) more affordable chance to own an editioned version of his Balloon Venus, in the form of a packaged collaboration with Dom Pérignon (also see their previous work with Warhol and David Lynch). Although unclear if this will be readily available, the […]

AM recently had the pleasure of visiting Jeff Koons’ latest show at the Gagosian in New York.

If Tom Fruin’s Watertower installation in Brooklyn is any indication, having artwork tower over art lovers in New York can make the cityscape a lot more interesting. Something that might do just that (as evidenced by these mock-up photos) is the proposed Water Tank Project, except instead of a new structure, existing water tanks (twelve feet high, thirteen feet in diameter) in NYC will be used as canvases for public art. Scheduled for the Summer of 2013, artwork from artists and notables like Jeff Koons, Ed Ruscha, Jose Parla, Catherine […]
