Born in Bristol, UK in 1965, Damien Hirst is commonly acknowledged to be one of the most influential artists of his generation. Hirst holds a special position within the Astrup Fearnley Museet, which now boasts a significant collection of his works, starting with the acquisition of Mother and Child (Divided) (1993) in 1996. The museum’s entire collection of Hirst works has now been brought together for the first time, to coincide with the exhibition of one of the artist’s most iconic works: the diamond skull, For the Love of God (2007).
