Damien Steven Hirst Estimated Net Worth In 2010 : $ 383 Million (USD)
Damien Steven Hirst (born 7 June 1965) is an English artist, entrepreneur and art collector. He is the most prominent member of the group known as the Young British Artists (or YBAs), who dominated the art scene in Britain during the 1990s.He is internationally renowned, and is reportedly Britain's richest living artist, with his wealth valued at £215m in the 2010 Sunday Times Rich List.
Artist Damien Hirst is known for many things, animals suspended in formaldehyde, a skull covered in diamonds, but one thing he is not known for is working alone. Hirst has employed teams of assistants for years to help him work on his pieces. But Hirst has gone back to basics for his series called 'The Blue Paintings." Done between 2006 and 2008, the 25 paintings mark Hirst's return to solo brush on canvas action. Only for an artist like Hirst would working alone actually be considered newsworthy, for him, it's practically a stunt.
