Damien Hirst cartoon. Cartoon about Damien Hirst’s shark in formaldehyde.
Damien Hirst has a major retrospective exhibition at Tate Madern, starting in April 2012
Damien Hirst was a member of the YBAs or Young British Artists.
The cartoon is a criticism of the pretentiousness of some contemporary art (Just look at the preposterous title of Hirst’s piece – “The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living”. Maybe it’s meant to be funny) and of the undue respect in which some of it is held. Hence the caption “It’s a very big fish for such a shallow idea.”
