Damien Hirst

Damien Hirst, a poster boy for the Young British Artists who rose to prominence in late 1980s London, is one of the most notorious artists of his generation. He has pushed the limits of fine art and good taste with sculptures that comprise dead animals submerged in formaldehyde; innumerable spot paintings that appear mass-produced and can sell for millions of dollars; and the exuberantly tacky For the Love of God (2007), a human skull studded with 8,601 diamonds. Through his installations, sculptures, drawings, and paintings, Hirst explores themes including religion, mortality, and desire. Since 1988, when the artist developed and curated “Freeze,” a ground-breaking exhibition of his work and that of his Goldsmiths College peers, he has been the subject of major shows at Tate Modern in London, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. In 2008, Hirst controversially staged “Beautiful Inside my Head Forever” an auction in which he sold his work directly to the public and raked in around $200 million for himself. His individual works have sold for more than $10 million at auction.

About the artist

British artist Damien Hirst is widely hailed as the enfant terrible of the contemporary art world. Hirst is one of the most prominent figures in the Young British Artists (YBA) movement, an internationally-renowned artist group known for their controversial work and dominance of the British art scene during the 1990s. A contemporary of well-known YBAs like Tracey Emin, Angus Fairhurst and Jenny Saville, Hirst is not shy to scandalise and shock the world with his art pieces.

Obsessed with the themes of life and death, it comes as no surprise that they have become a central motif in all of Hirst’s works. From his seemingly innocuous spot paintings to his controversial art installations involving animal carcasses, Hirst’s artworks are weighted with meaning and symbolism. A trailblazer and rule-breaker, Hirst is unafraid of showing his uniqueness through his pieces.
