Damien Hirst

Damien Hirst , an English artist known world-wide and the most prominent member of the Young British Artists who dominated the UK’s art scene in the 1990’s . Some may say Hirst is a controversial artist as in his piece ‘ the physical impossibility of death in the mind of someone living ” which consists of a 14-ft tiger shark immersed in formaldehyde in a clear display case .

 

Personally I think Damien Hirst’s ”A Thousand Years (1990)” sculpture is by far the most intriguing of them all . It consists of a cow head in a clear glass display case being eaten by flies, as disturbing as it may appear  Hirst explains that this shows the cycle of life in a way people would normally view it , as the flies survive in the result of the cows death allowing them to breed and the life circle continues .
