The Donald Trump of Art, Jeff Koons

Koons’s ambitions are crass and he has achieved them all – he has turned his art into business and, boy, has he made it big in that business. He is the Donald Trump of art. In what is now a pretty long career, Koons has done more than any other human being to destroy taste, sensitivity, and the idea that striking it rich as an artist has anything to do with talent. He has also inspired an ambitious young man from Leeds to follow in his golden footsteps.
