Damien Hirst is one of the most acclaimed multi-disciplinary artists of the last 20 years. His bold and groundbreaking artistic practice explores the fragility of the human condition through a variety of mediums. Hirst’s most controversial and internationally recognized art pieces are sculptural, often featuring formaldehyde-suspended carcasses encased in glass vitrines. His cutting-edge depiction of subjects undergoing death and decay has rendered him a colossal figure in the art world. Throughout his career, Hirst has also produced captivating paintings such as his Kaleidoscope, Spot and his latest Veil series. Moved by an entrepreneurial spirit and a proclivity for spectacle, Hirst has broken several world records as a living artist, becoming one of the most influential and disruptive contemporary artists.
This print is a rendering of Damien Hirst’s most famous sculpture, a platinum cast replica of a human skull adorned with over 1,000 carats of diamonds and human teeth. Here, the artist replaces the diamonds with diamond dust and adds a twist on the iconic piece by placing a large embellishment on the skull’s head.
