Money's great but take risks too, says US artist Jeff Koons

To his critics his work is overrated, overpriced and obvious. To his fans, he is a living legend – the incarnation of the Pop Art movement. Either way, at 63, Jeff Koons says he just wants to focus on creating the art he wants to make.

Koons’ works are brash, voluptuous and carry astronomical price tags but that hasn’t dimmed appetite for his pieces in Asia, where he presented at the recent edition of Art Basel in Hong Kong.
