About

The art of Damien Hirst is concerned with themes, ideas and feelings which are fundamental to human existence, and which, when the rhetoric and discussion of art itself has been stripped away, will remain as the inviolable truth of our common condition. In this, Hirst is working in a lineage which pre-dates the formal history of art, and extends to the earliest expressions of individual and social existence: the enshrinement of beauty and the agency of rare and precious materials; the drive to understand ourselves; the equivalent need for mystery, awe and enchantment; and above all the awareness of mortality trough the entirety of life.

His identification of such empathetically charges raw materials which he renders not merely articulate, but fluent in meaning and emotional depth, regard the art by Damien Hirst to the playful intellectualism of Marcel Duchamp and the brutal corporeity of Francis Bacon's depiction of the human form. A founder of the Young British Artists Movement, that presented to the art scene of 90-es a new generation of world established artists, Damien Hirst has created a new page of the art history, showing his works in such institutions as Tate Gallery (London), Museum of Modern Art (New York), Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam), Fondazione Prada (Milan), Israel Museum (Jerusalem), The Broad (Los Angeles).
