for the love of god * damien hirst

jay-z’s video had me thinking more about the art of damien hirst. the skull above is known in the art world as “for the love of god” ……

and will be on display in Florence this May 2011 at Palazzo Vecchio. check it out if you can. supposedly, the work was sold on 30 August 2007, for £50 million, to an anonymous consortium. the name, by the way, is inspired by hirst’s mother who asked him “for the love of god, what are you going to do next?” check out some additional art below. who knew hirst did wallpaper too?
