Damien Hirst “Beautiful Inside My Head Forever”

Most definitely not the first time I have mentioned Damien Hirst “Beautiful Inside My Head Forever”, although as this fascinating event beckons at Sotheby’s London the 15th and 16th of September I wanted to look a bit deeper into the auction of one of the world’s highest paid living artist’s. There will be 223 lots up for auction, with more than £65 million expected to be raised from the sale. They are new works by the artist, mostly from 2007 and 2008. There are works from many period’s of Hirt’s career as an artist making this in a way a ‘retrospective’ auction, although the pieces were constructed in the last two years.

Today, Time magazine have compiled an interesting article about Damien Hirst’s upcoming “Beautiful Inside My Head Forever” which will set Sotheby’s alight next week. What is perhaps most interesting are the figures, with 223 new pieces set to go on auction Hirst could pocket well over $100million. Well worth your time, so take the time to read the write up here.
