Claes Oldenburg, 46, Swedish-born pop artist, started drawing when he was a child and developed and mastered the skill. He moved to Chicago from New York in 1956, found a part-time job as an assistant in a library and captured the tattered, touching life of the lower East-side of New York. His art is intended to express and arouse feelings as it clearly does. Since then his sculpture has been widely exhibited; earning him a reputation as one of the world's most original artists today.
