CBC News: “Sculptor Eugenio Merino’s piece puts Hirst in a suicidal pose with blood pouring from a bullet wound to his head. It was unveiled at ARCO’s launch over the weekend.
The piece has already been sold for $41,290 Cdn to a collector in Florida.
‘Hirst is always trying to think of ways to make his art the most expensive,’ Merino told Bloomberg News.
‘If he killed himself, then the value of his art would increase a lot.'”
