Born in 1935 in Gabrovo, Bulgaria, as Christo Vladimirov Javacheff, Christo's artistic sensibilities were moulded under the shadow of a communist regime, influencing his early understanding of public space and creative liberty. His studies at the Fine Arts Academy in Sofia laid the foundation for his art, but it was his brave escape to the West and subsequent settlement in Paris that birthed a pivotal turn in his life and career. Here, he encountered Jeanne-Claude Denat de Guillebon, destined to be both his lifelong partner and collaborator.

Christo's early ventures were modest in scale, primarily involving the wrapping of mundane objects, a practice that subtly challenged the viewer's perception of the familiar. However, it wasn't long before his creative ambitions evolved, scaling up to the wrapping of massive architectural structures. These large-scale installations, far from the spectacles critics made them out to be, were rich with symbolism. They reflected on the nature of art and eloquently explored the intricate relationship between humanity and the environment, themes that would become hallmarks of his career.

Christo's professional career, in collaboration with de Guillebon, was characterised by breathtaking installations that were monumental in both scale and impact. Their work, which often involved wrapping large buildings or natural features, became synonymous with an art form that transcended traditional boundaries. Notable projects included the wrapping of the Reichstag in Berlin, a striking symbol of reunification, and the Running Fence in California, a fabric fence stretching over 24 miles. These projects became powerful statements on environmental interaction and the temporary nature of art. Each installation, existing only for a brief period, underscored the transient beauty of the artwork and the importance of the present moment. Christo's recent endeavour, the wrapping of the Arc de Triomphe, posthumously realised in 2021, serves as a testament to his vision and impact on contemporary art.

Christo's work often sparked public debate, blurring the lines between art, architecture, and nature. The Umbrellas, an installation in Japan and California featuring thousands of large umbrellas opened across the landscapes, was emblematic of Christo's commitment to creating art that was not only visually appealing but also engaged communities and environments on a larger scale.

Collaborations with various architects, engineers, and administrative bodies were crucial in seeing projects like Wrapped Trees in Switzerland come to fruition. Throughout his career, Christo was often met with mixed reactions, from admiration to scepticism, reflecting the polarising impact of his work.
