Christo Bulgarian, b. 1935

It's not a profession; it's existence.

Christo Vladimirov Javacheff was born on June 13, 1935, thesame day as his late wife, Jeanne-Claude. Together, Christo and Jeanne-Claude created works of environmentalist art on an impressive scale. Notable works include the wrapping of the Reichstag in Berlin and the Pont-Neuf bridge in Paris, as well as the 23 miles-long instillation of The Gates in New York City’s Central Park.
