“Tulips” belongs to the renowned Celebration series by Jeff Koons in 1994. The sculpture consists of a bouquet of multicolor balloon flowers in unexpected proportions, two meters tall and five meters across. Focusing on different generic and mass-produced objects associated with birthday parties, holidays, and festive events, the Celebration series reflect Koons's deep interest in the emblems of childhood. The reflective stainless-steel surface of the work recalls his earlier works, which aimed to transform an inflatable object into something hard, gleaming, and iconic. Versions of “Tulips” can be found in prestigious institutions around the world such as the Guggenheim Bilbao and Broad Museum, Los Angeles.
Jeff Koons, born in 1955, is a world-renowned contemporary artist. He studied at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He has gained a celebrity status with his stainless steel works and reflexive baloon animal reproductions. His pop art figures and sculptures are recognized as visually attractive and entertaining artworks. The artist attempts to push the limits of art through widespread references to art history, including Baroque style to Gustave Courbet, Duchamp’s philosophy to And Warhol and he turns daily objects of everyday life such as toys and souveniers into artworks and sculptures. Koons lives and works in New York.
