Hennessy Slams Hirst

Last week Larry Gagosian launched one of his most ambitious projects to date: all eleven of his galleries across 3 continents have been simultaneously filled with the collected spot paintings of Damien Hirst.  The critical response to this audacious venture has been lukewarm at best, but internet sensation Hennessy Youngman a.k.a Philadelphia artist Jayson Musson’s critique (above)  takes the cake. Describing the suite of exhibitions as “The perfect storm of banality”, Youngman proceeds to pan Hirst’s cheesy PR poses – particularly his open mouthed ‘Sharkface’ – and goes on to suggest that Hirst is as big a “tw*t” as Bono. Ouch.
