Christo

Bulgaria 1935

Christo Vladimirov Javacheff (1935), better known as Christo, along with Jeanne-Claude (1935-2009) formed the artist couple Christo & Jeanne-Claude. The marriage focused their artistic expectations in a language very close to what Land Art represents. The Gates, Sorround Islands or Umbrella, are some of the facilities left by the artists and that are already part of the artistic imaginary of society. Making great contributions to the Earth Art genre, Christo & Jeanne-Claude become icons of the artistic era of the 20th century because of their interventions with the landscape unmarked from any previous installation.
