In a few years, the contemporary artist Banksy has become very famous.
He is now considered as one of the major artists of the 21st century. Active since 1990, he mainly produces street art with stencils. He is also a committed artist, who very often conveys a political or social message in his paintings. The real name and identity of Banksy are still unknown today.
Since the self-destruction of his work at auction in 2018, the artist continues to see his value rise. He recently sold his paintings Devolved Parliament for 11 million euros and Game Changer for 19 million euros!

You've most likely already heard of Jeff Koons.
If you haven't, chances are you're familiar with his famous Balloon Dog, which represents a small dog created from inflatable balloons and available in many colors. Koons is now considered an icon of the 21st century, as much for his kitschy works as for his sense of commerce and communication.
Not everyone is a fan of "Jeff Koons art", but everyone is talking about him anyway! What other works does Jeff Koons do? The Tulips, The inflatable Rabbit and Puppy are iconic sculptures of the artist.


Damien Hirst
