British artist Damien Hirst has dominated the modern art scene for over thirty years and has created some of the most prominent pieces of abstract art in recent decades.

Abstract art is a modern art movement that originated in the 20th century. The genre can be defined as a style that is non-objective, non-figurative, non-representative and, ultimately, completely detached from realism. It is seen as one of the pioneering styles that has given birth to modern and contemporary art.
The origins of abstract art can be seen in the development of Post-Impressionism and the work of Paul Gaugin, Vincent van Gogh and Paul Cezanne. After the First World War, European artists felt disillusioned with reality and its depiction in traditional art forms. This disapproval paved the way for radical artistic movements to develop new ideas about abstraction.
