This Just In: Jeff Koons Sculpture in London Park

If you're lucky enough to be in London right now, head over to Saint James Square to check out the stainless-steel sculpture "Balloon Flower (Magenta)," by artist Jeff Koons, who's known for his public art and whimsical, childlike sculptures. The giant sculpture, which does indeed look like shiny twists of balloons, will be exhibited for the next 10 days in Saint James Square in London, England. The sculpture, which has an estimated worth of around $23.6 mllion, will be auctioned at Christie's Post-War and Contemporary Art Evening Sale on June 30. If nothing else, this is a great chance to get up close and personal with a rather pricey piece of art. Are you going to check it out?

It's odd to me how an artist like Jeff Koons practically owns the market, when there are so many other visionaries and pure talents out there who go unnoticed. Part of the reason van Gogh killed himself was despair over his perception of himself as an artistic failure - he only sold one painting during his lifetime, and it was to a friend. And here we have Koons raking in as much money as a Fortune 500 CEO. The disparity is hard to reconcile.

I was just at the Rooftop Cafe at the Met in NY yesterday and got to see some of his work there. http://www.metmuseum.org/special/koons_roof/images.asp
