Damien Hirst collectors lose thousands as expert calls plummeting value ‘a bloodbath’

Controversial artist dubbed a ‘marketing genius’ was apparently less of an investment than collectors first thought

Artworks by Damien Hirst have reportedly plummeted in value since he shattered the world record for an auction sale in 2008. 

The Beautiful Inside My Head auction raised a whopping £111m for the artist over two days, even as the financial markets collapsed amid the subprime mortgage scandal. 

Artworks are often bought by collectors as long-term investments, with the hope that they will increase in value over time as the artist’s reputation grows. 

However, experts at website Artnet have discovered that 17 of the 19 Hirst works sold since the 2008 auction have actually depreciated in value, with a total loss of around £2.2m. 

A painting of a skull titled Beautiful Mider sold for £670,000 in 2008, but was sold last year for £449,000. The Times notes that the loss for the seller will have been worse due to buyer’s premium, seller’s fees and storage costs. 

Tim Schneider of Artnet said it was not a case of one or two works dragging down the average worth. “Instead of a formaldehyde tank, the best fluid measure here is a bloodbath,” he wrote. “Is this grim total just a matter of a few horrendous results pulling down the rest of the group by association? Individual results thunder back a loud ‘no’.

Art economist and author Don Thompson said it was unlikely that collectors who bought Hirst’s work as an investment would ever recoup the money they spent. “The  value of his traditional work, taxidermy animals, spot paintings, spin paintings, probably peaked with the auction,” he said. 

Art specialist Philip Hook warned collectors back in 2013 that the “bubble” maintained by Hirst’s PR machine would eventually burst. 

Speaking at the Cheltenham Literature Festival he said: “An artist who is simply very good at playing the market and is good at marketing himself, he is the most in danger of [his art] suffering when he dies,” he said. 

“Those works that are less aggressively presented to the public will last.”

Muhammad Ali: Impossible is nothing.

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

Muhammad Ali (/ɑːˈl/;[8] born Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr.;[9] January 17, 1942 – June 3, 2016) was an American professional boxer and activist. He is widely regarded as one of the most significant and celebrated sports figures of the 20th century. From early in his career, Ali was known as an inspiring, controversial, and polarizing figure both inside and outside the ring (Wikipedia)

“God’s got me here for something. I can feel it. I was born for everything that I’m doing now.”

Heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali and former champion Floyd Patterson fought two times. The first bout took place on November 22, 1965; and the second on September 20, 1972. Ali won both fights through technical knockouts. The first fight was stopped in the twelfth round; and the second after the seventh round. After losing his title to Sunny Liston in round 1 Floyd tried to regain the title but was stopped by Liston again in first round.Following these defeats, Patterson went through a depression. However, he eventually recovered and began winning fights again, including top victories over Eddie Machen and George Chuvalo. The Chuvalo match getting Ring magazine’s “Fight of the Year” award.

UNIQUE Trial Proofs by E$COBAR

Upon the tragic passing of Muhammad Ali in 2016, pop/urban artist E$COBAR created a tribute printed edition called ‘Impossible is nothing.’ in a limited edition of 25 which went to sell out very fast.  Only a few signed proofs are still available. The colourway for the main edition (plus proofs) is red but the artist experimented with different colour permutations before settling on red.

Some are available, all are unique trial proofs, signed.

“It’s hard to be humble, when you’re as great as I am.”

An unsigned edition of 150 in the original colourway (sheet size 21 x 21cm) is available, framed and with COA attached on the back. This is an ideal inspiring and beautiful gift for someone special.
