Yeah, Damien Hirst. I think he's the guy who sold shark tanks full of formaldehyde to rich freaks and the dead sharks inside still rotted.

Coro is bad ass. We have a book of his in our store that has yet to sell. It's not available in the online shop as we only have one, but if it doesn't sell I won't be mad at all. That's something I'll happily keep on my shelf.

Lots of great art being created right now, almost like a modern renaissance but not exactly.
