The American artist known for his kitsch reproductions of banal objects.

Koons rose to prominence in the mid-1980s as part of a new generation who wanted to explore the meaning of art in a media-saturated era. His work is praised for its originality and influence, although Koons has stated that there are no hidden meanings, nor critiques.

The artist developed a colour-by-numbers system, so that each of his 100 or so assistants could execute his canvases and sculptures as if they had been done 'by a single hand'. He has said of his work: 'I think art takes you outside yourself, takes you past yourself.

'I believe that my journey has really been to remove my own anxiety. That's the key. The more anxiety you can remove, the more free you are to make that gesture, whatever the gesture is.'

This exhibition will include works in a variety of media to showcase his remarkably diverse art practice.
