A Certain Kind of Food; A Certain Kind of Art

Jeffrey "Jeff" Koons (born January 21, 1955) is an American artist known for his reproductions of banal objects—such as Balloon animals produced in stainless steel with mirror finish surfaces. He lives and works in both New York City and his hometown of York, Pennsylvania.




Koons, Jim Beam - Baggage Care, 1986


Another work, Jim Beam - J.B. Turner Engine (1986) is based on a commemorative, collectible in bottle in the form of a locomotive that was created by Jim Beam; however, Koons appropriated this model and had it cast in gleaming stainless-steel.[26] The train model cast in steel titled Jim Beam - Baggage Car (1986) even contains Jim Beam bourbon.
