Jeff Koons (born January 21, 1955), is an American contemporary artist and sculptor. He is noted for his use of kitsch imagery, sometimes in sculptural form and extremely large in size. His work is amongst the most expensive in the world for a contemporary artist.
- Abstraction and luxury are the guard dogs of the upper class.
- Art to me is a humanitarian act and I believe that there is a responsibility that art should somehow be able to affect mankind, to make the world a better place.
- I try to be a truthful artist and I try to show a level of courage. I enjoy that. I'm a messenger.
- When somebody sees my work, the only thing that they see is the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
