Damien Hirst’s infamous Shark in Formaldehyde is on display once again, at his first major retrospective at the Tate Modern in London.

It helped propel the young British artist and the Britart set into the public eye in the early 1990s.

The exhibition features his early work, including the painted frying pans of his student days, up to pieces from 2009.

Hirst’s work polarises opinions. Some think he revitalised contemporary art in Britain while others hold him responsible for turning art into a commodity.
