Then he gains notoriety in the arts world globally following his debut as an artist with his work in the Neo-Geometric Conceptualism exhibition at the Sonnabend gallery in New York in 1986.
Koons' works challenges the distinction between the art and kitsch worlds. Purity, beauty, sexuality and good fortune are all themes in his work.
