Jeff Koons is an American contemporary artist who is most known for his works reproducing banal objects, or objects that are typically seen as being common, overused, or boring. Koons was born in York, Pennsylvania on January 21, 1955, to Henry and Gloria Koons. Koons had a humble upbringing, and as a child would go door to door selling wrapping paper, in order to earn spending money. Jeff Koons went on to attend the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the Maryland Institute College of Art, where he studied painting. Koons credits his early inspirations, such as Salvador Dali, for his interest in the medium. While attending art school, Koons met another artist who would turn out to be another inspiration — Ed Paschke. Koons served as a studio assistant to Paschke, where he continued to learn and grow. After graduation, Jeff Koons moved to New York in 1977, where he worked at the Museum of Modern Art at the membership desk, while working to establish his presence and credibility as an artist in the city. It was during this time that Koons began to experiment with his look, and he would often dye his hair red and wear a thin pencil mustache, paying homage to Salvador Dali.
