Jeff Koons (born January 21, 1955), is an American artist. He is noted for his use of kitsch imagery using painting, sculpture and other forms, often in large scale. In 1991 he married Hungarian-born naturalized-Italian porn star Ilona Staller (better known as Cicciolina). His "Made in Heaven" (1990–91) series of paintings, photos and sculptures portrayed the couple in explicit sexual positions and created controversy.
