DAMIEN HIRST (1965- ) Macabre bad-boy Damien Hirst, one of the most prominent and notorious British artists was catapulted to international art stardom with his a 14-foot tiger shark suspended in a formaldehyde filled vitrine. All of Hirst’s works contain his ironic wit, and question art’s role in contemporary culture as he challenges the boundaries between art and science, and addresses the big questions of life, love, and death. Some of his most sought after pieces are the arrangements of color spots with titles that refer to pharmaceutical chemicals, known as Spot paintings.
