Description

Christo Vladimirov Javacheff (1935 -) or Christo for short is a Bulgarian American architect, painter, draftsman and installation artist. He is best known for his "wrapping art" in close collaboration with his wife, Jeanne-Claude Denat de Guillebon. The artistic strategy was to "dress up" large, striking buildings or landscapes with fabric. The packaging of buildings or objects leads to the abstraction of these subjects. It usually takes a lot of persuasiveness and it takes a long time before a planned project can actually be implemented. Thus, after many decades of preparation in 1995, it was the turn of the Reichstag in Berlin. The building was open to the public for two weeks. The result of their work is purely aesthetic and aims to make people look at the environment "with different eyes". They only financed the projects with the sale of drawings, preliminary designs and earlier work such as, for example, packed objects. There are signed original drawings, lithographs in limited editions and regular prints. Something for every price range. This work comes from our own collection and we received it in the mid-90s. It is a high-quality offset print, professionally framed in a wooden frame with plexi cover (non-reflective). Not hand signed, not numbered.
