I worked on one of Damiens spot paintings around the mid 80's. Actually I was working for an art collector, a young chap who had recently inherited several millions of dollars who was turning his L.A. home into his own private art gallery. While he probably had a decent eye for artwork, he wasnt so good about paying people,( various labourers that were doing the work ) some of which were getting a little upset. ( one electrician put a chicken bomb up in the cieling cavity through a hole cutout for recessed lighting ) ( a chicken bomb is a piece of chicken in a tightly sealed jam jar containing windex, or some liquid in which it festers for several weeks before exploding the jar omitting the most dreadfull stench )....I on the other hand found myself re-painting in one of the colored spots carefully with household emulsion, ( It was a decent sized canvas, and I have often wondered if he, or anyone ever noticed the slight change ) It wasnt untill several years later that I realized the probable value of that painting, but when I think of it get a little smirk, as I never did get fully paid.

Take a look at Andrew Campbell's work - indeed...Amazing stuff!

Just seen Andrew Campbell's latest "post-9/11" work @ http://www.the-artists.org/ArtistView.cfm?id=53547A99-C1CE-8F5A-6EDA266A92999C98

Better than anything I've seen in years...

Campbell is on the right path - agreed....but why just reproduce the same f**king poster? has he no imagination? There are more urgent issues to be made of which company is funded by which...start with the US government...and work your way up - jesus christ...kids should be learning this at pre-school.
Police state TODAY....SLAVERY tomorrow.
I wont start on the Hirst geezer...killing endangered species for vast profit...no fret..all that toxic formaldehyde will kill him young - there is a god.

I thought about using real butterflies in my art after browsing the ones on sale from Thailand in taxidermy section on eBay. I was inspired by a painting of a man with butterflies stuck to his face(I have forgotten who that famous painting was by. Dali?). Butterflies are not a PC medium, but they are such pretty colours artists just want to colour in with them. I am an eBay artist. I am lucky to get £30 for my art. I would like to visit Toddington Manor to create a sculpture/installation called eBay Art (with eBay Art painted loosley on the sides). It would comprise a skip, and would be filled with eBay art. Visitors to Toddington Gallery could degrade themselves by rumaging through the skip for a piece of FREE art, and with permission take the art away with them. Then when the skip was empty Damien could buy some more. Cool. Sue Williams www.galleryonthe.net (please join my site Damien to give it star kudos)

pure shit

cheapest shit

Anjaneyulu, you seem to find either Hirst's work (or the other comments here?) to be both the purest and the cheapest shit. Do you mean shit of both high quality or low quality? Is pure shit better than cheap shit - did your position harden between 10:38 and 10:40? What would be not-shit? In your economy, you really haven't been clear.

Some of your ink drawings are pretty good. Your recent paintings remind me a little of Lisa Milroy. I see a lot of tools-of-the-trade being fairly accurately but very flatly depicted, so I'll make a risky leap and assume you value technical proficiency and craftsmanship over ideas in art. Me, I like both.

I am glad to hear that Mr. Hirst has so much help, after all he is a terribly busy person.
;p

the only way to create a real art is to do not beleve of to be an artist, but just apiece of art.
