Damien Hirst is an English artist and entrepreneur and was huge in the 1990’s. He is most famous for his preserved animals in formaldehyde – sheep + shark + cow preserved and dissected in a clear display case. He is well off centre and more than a little strange. He is obsessed with death. In recent years he has focused on colour and spot paintings. He aligns spots that have the same distance between them as the width of the circle. These etchings are very simple but the clean white background with these gorgeous¬†jewelled¬†pills are bright and appealing. Interestingly,¬†Ellipticine is the name of the anticancer drug ♥
