The Sexy Secret History Of BMW's New Artist


The boys over @ Jalopnik have put together a nice article on Jeff Koons' art history.

Quote:
Jeff Koons isn't just the artist behind BMW's latest art car — he's also created some seriously erotic artwork. Take this piece, depicting his porn-star ex-wife, titled "Dirty Jeff on Top." Is this the kind of artist BMW wants? (NSFW)

Confession time: When it comes to art, I am an uncultured goon. I have spent most of my life immersed in literature, automobiles, engineering geekiness, and the study of the quick-service hamburger, and I've somehow reached the ripe old age of twenty-nine without learning anything about art. I can appreciate it; I can enjoy it; I occasionally even want it. I just don't know jack about it.
Make sure to follow the jump to read the entire article over at Jalopnik: http://jalopnik.com/5513753/the-sexy...mws-new-artist

So the guy loved his wife and was super happy about her being a hot porn star.
Nothing wrong with wanting to show that off.

Good for him.

well i guess thats how BMW diversifies themselves from the competition, invaluable investments in human capital. BMW FTMFW!

makes sense, since making these cars is basically them making sex for us.

koons is one of the most influential moderns artists who incidentally has a knack for employing explicit content. BMW wouldn't settle for anyone less.
