Damien Hirst- Again

popular in the 1990s.
Came to fame with his joint exhibition called Freeze.
One of his most famous pieces is "The Physical Impossibility of Death in the
Mind of Someone Living" which was a tiger shirk preserved in formaldehyde.
Hirst is reportedly the richest British Artist.
Hirst creates instillations which focus on the main aspects of life which are questioned by most people if not all. These are; creation, suffering and ultimately death. Damien Hirst produced work which also questions it however not on a global scale, he questions the individuals knowledge of ones own thoughts and the concepts in which we all know and believe in. Death is a main theme in his work but so is life, as it seems impossible to relate to death without having a knowledge of what life truly is.
It goes without saying that Hirsts pieces are not eco friendly. But they do question the world around us and our thoughts relating to it. I really like Hirsts work as it has intellectual depth to it and I do feel that I can personally connect to some of his pieces. Whether or not you like his work when confronted by it you stop and ask yourself what its about and that's something a lot of artist hope to achieve, including myself. Hirst is an extremely talented business man too and that largely is to thank for his success
