Damien Hirst is one of those contemporary artists whose works of art, personality, and public statements create a great amount of controversy. Despite the controversy (and perhaps because of it), Hirst is one of Britain's most famous contemporary artists. He is regarded as one of the leading members of the Young British Artists, a term used by the art world to identify a loose group of British visual artists who exhibited together and created a splash in the art scene in the 1980s to 1990s. Hirst is also one of Britain's most commercially successful artists. With a fortune of around £215 million, a starving artist he is most certainly not. What kind of art does he turn out to be so in demand with art collectors around the world? Many of his most famous works revolve around the theme of death. They include a tiger shark suspended and preserved in formaldehyde inside a glass display case (The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living, 1991), a life-sized recreation of a pharmacy (Pharmacy, 1992), a platinum human skull covered in 8,601 diamonds (For the Love of God, 2007), and a bull in formaldehyde, whose hooves and horns were cast in 18-carat gold (The Golden Calf, 2008).
