Tiger shark, glass, steel and formaldehyde solution
Damien Hirst is one of the most polemical and celebrated contemporary artists. He knows well how to turn around the concept of an art exhibition and capture the provocation as an art form itself. He may represent a new kind of artist whose skills cope either with study meditation or technical means display, considering both as part of the same creative process. Beyond aesthetic analysis, Hirst manages to leave nobody indifferent, and that reminds us of the power of controversy as an stimulating factor in the History of Art.
