ABOUT THE ART
Known for his balloon dog sculptures including POPek, a pooping balloon dog, UK artist Whatshisname released his first anthropomorphic version last year in the form of Jeff Balloonski (2020)—named after a certain famous modern artist. Now comes the follow-up in the form of the Jeff Junior polyresin sculpture.
Where Jeff Balloonski reflected the flair of the artist that inspired it, Jeff Junior brings a casual change of pace. Wearing a hoodie, Junior blends into nearly any cityscape. Perhaps Whatshisname’s first urban art toy sculpture, Jeff Junior is a fun new take on his long-running balloon dog series.
