Damien Hirst, the most controversial artist in YBA, likes to cause a sensation every year or so. Last summer, thousands of people lined up outside White Cube waiting to glimpse a human skull cast in platinum and covered with 8,601 diamonds; A few months earlier Mr. Hirst had installed an animal kingdom in the lobby of the Lever House in New York; Recently, Damien has cut out his dealers and taken his work straight to auction and made a great success. Does he create the unwritten rule of art market? Or the dark logic of contemporary art covers the truth?
