Who doesn’t love a giant shiny orange balloon monkey? Not Christie’s New York that’s for sure.  They love it so much that they’re putting it out in front of their Rockefeller Plaza HQ for 6 weeks before they sell it. Go and have a look why don’t you.

One year after Balloon Dog (Orange) set the world auction record for any living artist, Christie’s will present the 20-foot-long Balloon Monkey (Orange) at the entrance of Christie’s 20 Rockefeller Plaza for six weeks before it is sold on November 12. Coming just after the  Jeff Koons’ retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Christie’s will offer Balloon Monkey (Orange), as part of the November evening sale of Post-War and Contemporary Art.
