  4. Butterflies

    YBA Damien Hirst’s work has generated enormous controversy in large part due to its morbidity and his fascination with medicine, which is evident in several of his series: the encased dead animals in various states of preservation, the incorporation of butterfly wings into stained glass-like images, cabinets filled with pharmaceuticals, and diamond-encrusted skulls.

  6. Hirst & McQueen

    Alexander McQueen is teaming up with enfant terrible Damien Hirst to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its signature skull scarf. The artist will create 30 limited edition designs which will appear on a collection of scarves.

    Hirst’s prints will be inspired by his Entomology paintings - butterflies, bugs, spiders and other insects form kaleidoscopic geometric shapes, laid out to create the McQueen skull motif. The collaboration highlights both McQueen and Hirst’s "mutual love of symmetrical design and a penchant for the dark side of nature."

    The scarves will be available in November.

  8. Purity

    Silver used to be mined in Combe Martin where I live. It’s dreamy, otherworldly, but also sensuous and sexy…” -Damien Hirst.

    Hirst used silver to create this sculpture of a pregnant woman. This surreal, scientifically rendered figure depicts the flesh peeled back to reveal the inner muscle, bone, and fetal structure of the woman.

  10. Young British Artists

    Twenty-five years ago, Damien Hirst organized the Freeze exhibition in an empty London Port Authority building at Surrey Docks in London, England. This exhibition ushered in the new generation of Young British Artists, an era which Guardian critic, Jonathan Jones recently referred to as “the best 25 years in British art history.” 

    Pictured is Hirst’s The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living, which has since become an icon of the YBA generation and Contemporary Art in general, sparking debates over the very nature of art as well as the eight-digit prices these works have commanded.

  16. Hirst

    Controversial Contemporary artist Damien Hirst is one of the best known Contemporary British artists to date. His œuvre is abstract, conceptual, romantic, baroque, and minimal, and he embraces and carries on the legacy of Warhol with sensation-seeking, factory-made work that is as much about marketing as it is about content. 

    Pictured is Hirst’s Skull III (from I once was what you are, you will be what I am) (2007), which is now live for bidding on artnet Auctions.
