Damien Hirst

23 12 2014

Damien Hirst is one of the most influential artists in the world. His first exhibition, Freeze, took place in London in 1988. Born in 1965 in Bristol, UK, he lives and works in London and Devon. He is one of the most prominent artists to have emerged from the British art scene in the 1990s. His works are often associated with life, death, beliefs, and values.

Sticky paper. My grandparents used to have sticky paper hanging from the ceiling in their kitchen. It caught flies. You’d be eating dinner and above you would be the death thralls of these creatures. That’s what Damien Hirst’s work is like. Sticky paper. It attracts controversy. And the art world loves controversy. Because controversy is money. And Damien Hirst has managed to make a lot of money.
