Christo was a Bulgarian-American artist. He was born in 1935 in Gabrovo. In Bulgaria he began studying art at the National Academy of Art in Sofia, where his mother worked as secretary.
He moved to Paris in 1958, where he was marginalized and earned money as a portraitist on the city’s streets.
Only later Christo started to work on Land Art with the project “Packages and Wrapped Objects.
The packaging of everyday objects, like bottles and tables, captured the intrest of artists such as Arman and Yves Klein, friends of Christo, with whom he established the "New Realism" artistic movement in the decade 1960-1970.
Working all over the world, from Europe to the USA and the United Arab Emirates, Christo conceives specific projects according to the place in which he is operating. One of his most recend Land Artworks was a 3-km-long floating bridge on Iseo Lake, linking the mainland to Monte Isola. For the first time in the history of this area, this work made it possible to access the island by land by connecting it to the mainland. From June 17th to July 3rd 2016 many visitors walked across this floating bridge, actively taking part in the creation of this special work.
