I am curious; what do you think of Hirst's work...in general?
Well... I think Hirst and the YBA's did help bring back much needed attention to art ( good or bad) to Great Britain, and I also find Damien to be a clever fellow.
I'm not an admirer of his work with some exceptions for sure. The Ritz Carlton Powerscourt ( Ireland) we stayed at had a number of his pieces I enjoyed a great deal, and there were a couple of pieces in Gordan Ramsay's restaurant I had never seen before.
Overall, he is not on my radar, but has been a major force without debate in the art world over the last 20 years.
