Damien Hirst net worth 2017, biography & wiki:
He’s the most visible person in the group called the Young British Artists (or YBAs), who commanded the art scene in Britain during the 1990s. He’s globally famous, and is apparently the UK’s most affluent living artist, with his riches valued at 215m in the 2010 Sunday Times Rich List. During the 1990s his career was closely linked with the collector Charles Saatchi, but raising clashes came to a head in 2003 as well as the relationship finished.
Passing is a fundamental topic in Hirst’s works. He became well-known for a number of artworks in which dead creatures (including a shark, a sheep as well as a cow) are maintained—occasionally having been dissected—in formaldehyde. He’s also made “whirl paintings,” created on a spinning ring-shaped surface, and “spot paintings”, which are rows of at random coloured rings created by his helpers.
The auction surpassed all forecasts, increasing 111million ($198million), breaking the record to get a one-artist auction along with Hirst’s own record with 10.3million for “The Golden Calf”, an animal with 18-carat gold horns and hooves, preserved in formaldehyde.
In many cases since 1999, sources for particular of Hirst’s works have been challenged and fought as plagiarized, both in written posts by journalists and artists, and, in a single case, through legal proceedings which led to an out-of-court settlement.
