Jeff Koons’ “Coloring Book” Royal Academy, London

Jeff Koons has added a fantastic and playful piece to the courtyard of the Royal Academy, London. His giant paintbrush swirls on steel, “Coloring Book”, add hits of colour to the off white/ grubby grey of the surrounding Neo-Classical building. The flat exaggerated paint brushes reflect the building’s symmetry which makes the piece seem transparent as the reflections fit with the bigger picture of the building either side. It will be resident in the courtyard until 15th August. Go! Go!
