Christo and Jeanne-Claude have been creating monumental works on a huge scale for over half a century, including the wrapping of The Reichstag in Berlin and The Gates in Central Park, New York. Their drawings are held by most major museums, galleries, and collections around the world, including Guggenheim New York, Tate London, and the Centre Pompidou Paris. The work is also held by many major corporate collections including Deutsche Bank, Barclays Capital, Daimler, and Toyota.

Christo is committed to supporting the next generation of artists and creative practitioners in the United Arab Emirates. In addition to personally gifting the winning artist(s) $5000 to further their careers, Christo views the winning work in the presence of the artist(s) at New York University Abu Dhabi on opening night and invites them to join him for a private dinner after the event.
