The Damien Hirst‘s exhibition (with all his key works from over twenty years) at Tate Modern is absolutely unmissable and can be quite disturbing as well.
I’ve taken a few pictures with my phone and here are the ones that highlight his work on death or life.

Ai Weiwei. He’s an awesome contemporary artist from China. Besides that, he has a deep political engagement against China’s totalitarian government. His profile should be read by everyone in the world! Have a look at it here. His main site is AiWeiwei .
About his artistic work, it seems easily understandable that most of the time it is related with this rowdy political situation.
I’m happy to know that he is going to be the next artist to work for Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall, Tate’s huge kind of warehouse, at the enter of the gallery. His work will be unveiled on 12 October 2010 and will remain on view until 25 April next year.
