Description

Damien Hirst, Isocytosine is an original woodcut.  This print is signed on the front and numbered on the reverse from the edition of 55.

Damien Hirst is the most prominent of the Young British Artists (YBAs) that emerged in the 1990s. Like many of the YBAs, Hirst confronts big themes head on, including life, death, science, and religion. His mixed-media sculptures are created from a frequently controversial assortment of formaldehyde-suspended carcasses, cigarette butts, pharmaceutical packaging, and surgical instruments, often encased in glass vitrines.

In June 2007 Damien Hirst opened his exhibition Beyond Belief, highlighting Hirst’s new work including the centre-piece, a memento mori titled For the Love of God, a human skull recreated in platinum and adorned with 8,601 diamonds. The asking price for For the Love of God was £50,000,000.

Hirst is renowned for his Butterfly Series, in which Hirst arranged thousands of butterfly wings in a mandala-like pattern. Another popular Hirst series are the ‘Spin’ paintings. Damien Hirst designed the sets for Glastonbury, a play about the Glastonbury music festival, and Hirst designed and directed Breath, the 30-45 second film version of Samuel Beckett’s 1969 short.

The art of Damien Hirst has been exhibited widely, in Britain, Korea, the USA, Australia, and countries all over Europe. Hirst’s work is included in many private collections and in permanent collections at public museums and galleries. Damien Hirst now lives in Devon with his sons Connor (b.1995) and Cassius (b.2000) and girlfriend Maia Norman. Damien Hirst works at his home and in London.

The art of Damien Hirst has a visual power that is virtually unmatched by any possible description of it. One cannot really hope to understand it, or even visualize it without experiencing it firsthand.
