Jeff Koons

CATEGORY: Thinkers

WHAT MAKES HIM HAUTE: In November 2007, Koons’ works became some of the most expensive by any living artist when his giant stainless-steel Hanging Heart sold at Sotheby’s New York for $23.6 million, only to be topped in July 2008 by his Balloon Flower (Magenta) selling for a record $25.7 million at Christie’s in London. In July of this year, he had his first major solo show at the Serpentine Gallery in London.
