Christo & Jeanne Claude Nachruf-Christo verstorben-Editionen-Kunst | Fils Fine Arts

Farewell to Christo (13.06.1935 - 31.05.2020)

Spectacular visions, persistence, lust for life – this was being characteristic of Christo.

Christo died on may 30, 2020 at age of 84 in New York. 30. We are heartstricken. It is a loss of an exceptional artist and person.


In 1985 our cooperation with Christo und Jeanne-Claude did start. We feel conected by 35 years of publishing artworks by them, by projects, exhibitions, lectures and journeys.

Christo always surprised us again and again with his unimaginable ideas and his breathtaking realized projects and installations. He teached us that big visions don't just can be dreamed but can be realized.

Christo und Jeanne-Claude did create an epic work. Together, they have enriched our world.

We are deeply greatful for what they have given us by their art.

Christo's second to last project:
»The Floating Piers« (2016)

Christo's project »The Floating Piers, Lake Iseo, Italy 2014-2016« was realized and was presented to the public from June 18th until July 3rd 2016. 

The spectacular installation could be visited and even walked-on. We were on-site most of the time and are really fascinated by this very special piece of art. In addition, we organized for collectors and fans of Christo's art a weekend on Lake Iseo – it were great days with a lasting art experience!
