[edit] Information

Profile of the Swedish born, American artist, best known for his colossal sculptures of commonly found everyday objects. Many of these objects, though ridiculed when they first appeared, have since come to be seen as important, fun additions to public outdoor art. In addition to his large replicas, Oldenburg is also famous for his range of soft sculpture objects, including 'Clothespin', a giant inflatable clothes peg, and 'Soft Bathtub', a foam-filled canvas with wood, cord and plaster. Giant hamburgers and soft toilets - his images of consumerism, executed in disorientating materials and dimensions, and environments made Claes Oldenburg a key figure in Pop Art. Today, his landscape art and large sculptures are modern monuments which have made this artist famous far beyond the art world. Gerald Fox accompanied Oldenburg during the construction, in 1995, of one of these large-scale projects and the preparation of his Anthology retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum. Artists like Roy Lichtenstein give a glimpse into the world of a multi-faceted artist who transforms everyday objects into both sensual and ironical artworks.
