Christo Art

Bulgarian, 1935-2009

Christo was born Christo Vladimirov Javacheff in Bulgaria in 1935. Encouraged by his mother, who was a former secretary to the director of the Sofia National Academy of Art, he began to take drawing and painting lessons at age six. He went on to study at the National Academy of Art in Sofia, Bulgaria, as well as one semester at the Fine Arts Academy in Vienna, Austria, in 1957. In 1958 he moved to Paris where he met Jeanne-Claude, who became his wife and partner in the creation of monumental environmental artworks, which transcended the traditional bounds of painting, sculpture and architecture. Among their works were “Wrapped Coast” near Sydney, Australia (1968-69); “Valley Curtain, Rifle, Colorado” (1970-72); “Running Fence” in California (1972-76); “Surrounded Islands” in Miami, Florida (1980-83); “The Pont Neuf Wrapped” in Paris (1975-85); “The Umbrellas” in Japan and California (1984-91); “Wrapped Reichstag” in Berlin, Germany (1972-95); “The Gates” in New York’s Central Park (1979-2005); “The Floating Piers” in Lake Iseo, Italy (2014-16); and “The London Mastaba” on Serpentine Lake in London (2016-18). Jeanne-Claude died in 2009 in New York, and Christo died there in 2020, leaving behind a work in progress, “L’Arc De Triomphe, Wrapped,” to be completed posthumously in 2021.
