Google em'...Damien Hirst

"I've always thought of a museums as dust gathering things for dead artist..."

Damien Hirst

Damien Hirst is a world renowned artist admired by many including Tom Ford (which is how I initially heard of him), he is apart of the YBA (Young British Artist) and is most well known for his fascination with death, and interpreting it. Some of his more recent noted works include a 14 ft. tiger shark dissected and preserved in formaldehyde. After observing each work it's hard not to be drawn into his world, but bring it in to yours is not cheap. On average a Hirst piece retails for over 5 million dollars. The piece displayed in this video is predicted to sale for well over 50 million. Now that's what I call luxurious living. Enjoy.
