Do you think Jeff Koons went overboard with his yacht design?
I recently learned that Jeff Koons had been commissioned by Dakis Joannou, billionaire businessman and art collector, to create exterior art for his new yacht. The yacht launch party was as excessive as Koons concept for the yacht-- including an art world A-list guest roster. Jeffery Deitch, Larry Gagosian, Marian Goodman, and Nicholas Serota attended the christening of the yacht, named ’Guilty’, along with other guests. Koons has stated that he based the design on a World War I camouflage pattern. All aboard or abandon ship? You be the judge. What do you think about Koons yacht art?
