The creator of the iconic shark in formaldehyde, Hirst was a trail blazer for the Young British Artist movement and has gone on to be celebrated as one of Britain’s greatest conceptual artists. With the backing of advertising guru Charles Saatchi his reputation rocketed in the early 90s as he showed at the Venice Biennale, curated a show at the Serpentine Gallery in London and had his reputation cemented with the hugely popular Sensation Exhibition at the Royal Academy in London. Hirst has been criticised for not physically being involved in producing much of the art that he sells, rather seeing his role as coming up with the idea and leaving the execution to his team of assistants.

With his uncanny ability to persuade thousands of people to strip off and get naked, this American photographer is best known for this large-scale nude shoots at famous locations around the work. Starting off documenting nudes in public locations of his home town New York, one of his first "performances" was 28 naked people in front of the United Nations building. He has since gone on photograph in Barcelona, Amsterdam, at the Sydney Opera House and gathered a record-breaking 18,000 naked people to be shot in Mexico City’s main square.

O criador do icônico tubarão no formol, Hirst foi um pioneiro do grupo Young British Artists e passou a ser considerado um dos maiores artistas conceituais da Grã-Bretanha. Com o apoio do guru da publicidade Charles Saatchi, sua reputação disparou nos anos 90 quando Hirst mostrou suas obras na Bienal de Veneza, curou uma mostra na Serpentine Gallery em Londres e firmou sua reputação com a exposição 'Sensation', sucesso de audiência na Royal Academy em Londres. Hirst foi criticado por não produzir fisicamente grande parte de suas obras. Ele acredita que o seu papel como artista é somente conceitual e deixa a produção para o seu time de assistentes.

Com seu dom fantástico de convencer milhares de pessoas a tirar a roupa, este fotógrafo americano é conhecido pelos seus nus em grande escala fotografados em diversos lugares famosos por todo o mundo. Ele começou a documentar nus em lugares públicos na sua cidade natal de Nova Iorque e um de seus primeiros "shows" foi com 28 pessoas na frente do prédio das Nações Unidas. Desde então, ele já fotografou em Barcelona, Amsterdã, na Sydney Opera House e quebrou o recorde quando reuniu e fotografou 18.000 pessoas nuas na praça principal da Cidade do México.
