Christo and Jeanne-Claude
Christo and Jeanne-Claude was perhaps the most prolific artist couple focusing on environmental art. Their works were usually located in public places where they could be used by the audience. Best known for their Central Park installation and wrappings of landmark buildings, they rose to fame thanks to their works that often took decades to prepare.
More often than not, the couple used textile and fabric in their sculptures to create a delicate and sensual feel, which in return translated to the temporary character of their piece. Most of Christo and Jean-Claude’s works were visually impressive and, deemed by some as controversial, evoked debates and misunderstandings.
