Bulgarian artist Christo Javacheff, later known as Christo, trained at the Academy of Fine Arts in Sofia. Interested in art directed towards social purposes, together with his partner and collaborator Jeanne-Claude Denat de Guillebon, Christo sought to provoke new insights into ordinary objects by wrapping them. Initially modest in scale, these temporary wrappings evolved to become monumental projects. In 1976 Christo proposed a project for wrapping the walkways in St Stephen’s Green, Dublin.View Artist
