Christo (American, Bulgarian-born Christo Vladimirov Javacheff, b.1935) and Jeanne-Claude (American, French-born Jeanne-Claude Denat de Guillebon, 1935 –2009) were a couple most known for creating conceptually and visually impressive works that covered familiar locations and monuments in swaths of fabric. Sometimes seen as controversial due to their scale and the monuments chosen, their environmental artworks examine and create new ways of viewing familiar landscapes. Their most famed works include, “Wrapped Reichstag”, Berlin (1971-95), “The Umbrellas”, Japan - USA (1984-91) and “Surrounded Islands”, Biscayne Bay, Greater Miami, Florida (1980-83).
