Recent news broke that art world kingpin Jeff Koons has laid off staff assistants before moving his art studio from Chelsea to the Hudson Yards area of New York City.
ArtNews reports this is the fourth round of layoffs since 2015, apparently from a decrease in sales. He famously sold his Balloon Dog for $58m in 2013.
“I’m flattered that my works are perceived by society as having some relevant value. But the beauty to have impact with real individuals, that they can come across their own potential, that’s what really brings me joy,” the artist said in a recent <spaninterview.
If you are keen for a Koons selfie, wait outside his new studio outside of 475 Tenth Avenue.
