UPDATE 2018; Hirst’s latest brave creative step – free up & overlap the spots a bit.

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


A new dilemma for Hirst is that with Treasures, he’s not even to be considered the architect, having stooped to stealing the original concept, title and even audio presentation mode of his Venetian show hook line and sinker from another artist… along with the familiar employing of skilled craftsmen forced beforehand to sign away any public claim to having made the objects in connection with DH.

So that leaves the world’s wealthiest artist defined as little better than a common thief – albeit with an impressive flair for business – yet in increasingly common knowledge, one virtually bereft of artistic talent or moral compass.
– M. St.M

    • If our art superhero had put his sacred John Hancock to this notebook in the stead of AA, you could probably safely add three or four zeros on the end, for the at-auction sale price.
      Think of the wonderful sense of creative achievement he must wake up to each and every day!
