- UPDATE 2018; Hirst’s latest brave “creative step” – free up the unforgiving former grid-like positioning of the spots, make them slightly off-circular in shape and overlap them a little.
Where could the great man have noticed those 3 “innovations” before?

Ever wondered where the world’s wealthiest artist gets his inspiration?
Take a peek at the creative source material and overall concept Hirst blatantly & shamelessly stole for his recent ” Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable ” show.
“Everybody goes, did you actually paint them? I don’t know why that’s important in art.
“If you live in a Frank Gehry house, it’s not important to you that he laid the bricks.
“And I see myself more like a kind of architect in the way that I make things, than a painter, even if I’m making paintings.
– Damien Hirst, March 2018
The problem for our Damien, not that he cares, is that as with Treasures.., he’s now not even the architect – having stolen the entire original concept, the title and the presentation mode of his Venetian show hook line and sinker along with the usual employing of talented craftsmen, forced beforehand to sign away any public claim to having made the objects in connection with Hirst.
So that just kind of leaves him defined as little more than a common thief, bereft of artistic merit beyond that of a loudly squawking 3-sentence showoff parrot, pathetically hopping around in a small bent cage called the art world that he’s gone and made his world and which comprises the only people who appear to forget the consistent obvious plagiarism and praise his work to the heavens, but then only on the basis that it enriches them financially to so do.
Perhaps the man may be dimly aware of that by now?
