One of my favourite artists has inspired today's min-mal - Jeff Koons. His work is so fun, bright and colourful I was immediately drawn to it. Koons creates sculptures of trivial items in materials congruous to there original form. For example:
Seaside inflatables from aluminium, or
A giant puppy in plants!
One of his most famous pieces is a giant balloon animal dog made from steel
and this is what has inspired my mini-mal. If Koons can make outsized steel balloon animals why can't I make mini knitted ballon animals?!
