American artist Jeff Koons has been both celebrated and critiqued for his works that elevate seemingly banal objects into high art. The former Wall Street stockbroker is perhaps best known for Balloon Dog, a series of simple yet visually striking sculptures that have spurred everything from lucrative brand collaborations to a slew of copycat works. Whether or not you're a fan, it's hard to deny that Balloon Dog has taken the art world by storm. The sculpture is currently on view at the Whitney Museum for a retrospective on Koons which closes on Oct. 19.
