Biography   Javacheff Christo

/ KRIS-toe /    click to hear
An environmental installation artist and painter of architectural landscape drawings, Christo has become known for "wrapping" famous buildings and geographical landmarks with plastic and woven-fabric sheets.  His projects, usually with the assistance of his wife and dealer Jeanne-Claude, include wrappings of the "Berne Kunsthalee" in 1968, a coastline area in Australia; the Reichstag, in Berlin; and the Pont Neuf in Paris.  In California, he built a running fence 18 feet high and 24.5 miles long and in Japan and California, created a running series of 3,100 umbrellas.

In February 2005, the Christos oversaw the installation of one of their most attention-getting endeavors, The Gates, Central Park, New York, 1979-2
