Jeff Koon’s biography – Early Life
Jeff Koons is unquestionably one of the most established Neo-Pop artists, an increasingly famous clique of artists who draw their inspiration from pop culture, entertainment media and pop artists. Born in 1955 in York, Pennsylvania, Jeff got his feet wet in the world of art at a tender age of 8, when he started creating copies of old-master paintings. What’s even more interesting is that he managed to sell a few of them at an antique store that belonged to his father.
