Jeff Koons quotes :
I try to be a truthful artist and I try to show a level of courage. I enjoy that. I'm a messenger.Jeff Koons
I was trying to make art that my son could look on in the future and would realize I was thinking about him very much during these times... that he can look and see my dad's thinking about me, but to also embed in these things something that is bigger than all of us.Jeff Koons
