Jeff Koons Razzle Dazzles
Razzle Dazzle, also known as Dazzle camouflage, refers to the abstract geometric painting technique used extensively to decorate naval ships during World War I. After failed attempts to develop an effective all weather camouflage the varied patterns made it difficult for enemies to gauge the size and speed at which the ships traveled. The same Razzle Dazzle served as the inspiration for Jeff Koons' Guilty yacht. While the only enemies Dakis Joannou, who commissioned the boat, has to watch out for are jealous onlookers we're certain he feels right at home on his floating work of art.
