Christo Vladimirov Javacheff, known as Christo, died in his New York City apartment on 31 May.
Following the sad news that Christo has died, here are eight key projects by the Bulgarian artist and his late partner Jeanne Claude.
The art duo are famous for their large scale pieces that involve wrapping landmark buildings and landscapes in huge amounts of fabric, or creating temporary structures from colourful oil barrels.
Despite the best efforts of critics to ascribe specific meaning to their work, the artists always insisted that their pieces are simply about experiencing the artwork in the moment, in the context of its environment.
Their work defies categorisation, blending art, architecture and sculpture. here are seven of their most important realised works and one yet-to-be-built project:
Wall of Oil Barrels - The Iron Curtain, Rue Visconti, Paris, 1961-62
Wrapped Coast, One Million Square Feet, Little Bay, Sydney, Australia, 1969
Valley Curtain, Rifle, Colorado, 1972
Surrounded Islands, Biscayne Bay, Greater Miami, Florida, 1983
The Gates, Central Park, New York City, 2005
The Floating Piers, Lake Iseo, Italy, 2016
The London Mastaba, Serpentine Lake, London, 2018
