CHRISTO AND JEANNE-CLAUDE

 

Christo and Jeanne-Claude were a collaborative artist duo known for their monumental environmental installations. Best remembered in the public’s mind for wrapping architecture and natural elements in fabric, their works were often unprecedented in scale, such as Running Fence down the California coast, and Wrapped Coast in Australia. Part of France’s New Realism movement, the artists’ temporary textile interventions required dedicated planning and execution through detailed drawings. Born Christo Vladimirov Javacheff on June 13, 1935 in Gabrovo, Bulgaria, the artist met his wife Jeanne-Claude Marie Denat while living in Paris, France. She was born on the exact same day as her husband, June 13, 1935, in Casablanca, Morroco and died on November 18, 2009 in New York, NY. Christo studied at the National Academy of Art in Sofia, while Jeanne-Claude graduated with a degree in Latin and Philosophy from the University of Tunis. Like his contemporary Arman, Christo used smaller found objects in his earlier works, wrapping cars or furniture, and gradually advancing to large-scale exhibitions once he began to collaborate with Jeanne-Claude. The pair emigrated to the United States in 1964, settling in New York, NY where Christo currently resides and works.
