If you type in Google “jeff koons made in heaven“, you will find a site with lots of images that I dare watch but not post to this blog (yet). Apart from those, Jeff Koons, the famous American artist, is renowned for giant puppies, tulips, and other oversized objects and topiary sculptures, often multicolour, like the Bilbao Puppy.
Koons’s art has already influenced Damien Hirst, and, to judge by The Telegraph report, the dog groomers couldn’t remain indifferent either. Throwing caution to the wind, they went ahead of Koons and turned real poodles into pandas, dragons, peacocks, and other pretty monsters that would be a nice addition to the American artist’s work.
I cannot think of a dog owner who never tried to dress their four-legged companion in a sweater, put sunglasses or a cap on them, get them drive a car or similar. A skateboard-riding bulldog was an overnight YouTube sensation. But making your poodle a camel is, well, different.
