Collection: Christo   1935 - 2020 

Christo, born June 13, 1935 in Gabrovo, Bulgaria, is an environmental sculptor noted for his controversial outdoor sculptures that force observers to confront questions regarding the nature of art.

His earliest sculptures were composed of cans and bottles—some as found and some painted or wrapped in paper, plastic, or fabric. He and his wife’s first collaborative works included Dockside Packages. Seen as they are by all manner of passersby, their works force observers to confront questions regarding the nature of art.
