Pop artist and sculptor Claes (klaus) Oldenburg. He turns everyday objects into colossal public monuments. He created a giant clothespin for Philadelphia, a rubber stamp for Cleveland, a fruit bowl for Miami, and others. Before taking on the large public sculptures, CLAES worked in multiples, where a small object is repeated. A new book about this period of his work is called, "Claes Oldenburg: Multiples in Retrospect 1964-1990." (by Rizzoli International Publications, Inc.)
