Thank You for Chinese New Year which begins today! 2018 is the Year of the Dog.
I invite you to celebrate the Year of the Dog in Bilbao, Spain. The giant topiary symbol of 2018 meets us near the entrance to Guggenhaim Museum. I was lucky to enjoy it by my own eyes and happy to share it with you.
With Blooming “Puppy,” a 43-foot-tall living plant sculpture by Jeff Koons we open the door to our New Happiness and Joy. Creating the “Puppy” Koons engaged both past and present, employing sophisticated computer modeling to create a work that references the 18th-century formal European garden.
Today is beginning of the Lunar New Year or the Spring festival. You know, Spring begins from tulips! This photo is not mine, it is from Guggenheim Museum.
Jeff Koons presents Tulips, a bouquet of multicolor balloon flowers blown up to gargantuan proportions (more than 2 meters tall and 5 meters across). What’s the beautiful celebration of 2018 we have!
Puppies and flowers – this combination is the guarantee of our blooming in 2018!
Jeff Koons designed this public sculptures to create optimism, and to instill, in his own words, “confidence and security.” Honest and loyal, Dog is the truest friend and most reliable partner. He will never abandon their friends, family or work.
“Just keep believing, you’ll see a new season soon
You’re turning into something amazing
Baby, you were born to bloom, bloom, bloom, bloom
Bloom, bloom, bloom, bloom – ” please enjoy the song by Moriah Peters!
Thank you for celebrating Today with me. The Blooming Puppy of 2018 wishes you harmony and joy!
Happy New Blooming Year!
