CONTEMPORARY & CONTROVERSIAL ARTIST JEFF KOONS ON CNNS TALK ASIA

Challenging the boundaries of art and technical ingenuity, Jeff Koons' work has divided critics and earned him the title of the world's most expensive living artist. This month on ‘Talk Asia’, CNN International correspondent Anna Coren meets Koons to talk about the inspiration behind his work. They discuss some of his most famous pieces including ‘Michael Jackson and Bubbles’, ‘Rabbit’ and the current ‘Hulk Elvis’ exhibition in Hong Kong. Koons shares why he takes criticism personally, opens up about his admiration for Salvador Dali and why the band Led Zeppelin means so much to him.
