In an effort to prove he is, in fact, (according to the current issue of New York Magazine) "the most successful American artist since Warhol," Jeff Koons kicked off a tour-de-force trio of mega art shows in New York this week with his display of three massive new balloon animal sculptures at the Frieze Art Fair. Showing with longtime ally and art world gangster/puppet master Larry Gagosian's eponymous gallery, the triple threat of multimillion dollar psychedelic aluminum crowd pleasers put smiles on the people's faces and likely a song in old Larry's heart as he contemplated the forthcoming windfall they would generate for his empire. Next up for Koons to close out the week are huge shows of new work at David Zwirner and Gagosian Gallery proper, pitting the city's two most powerful art dealers against one another with the same artist in the same week in the same city. Somehow, we think Jeff Koons will be the one who comes out the winner...
