Whoa! The question everyone always asks me is “G, you’ve met EVERYONE! Who’s on your ‘must meet list’?” In the art world, the person at the top of the list for many years has been Damien Hirst. On my 6th anniversary of moving to New York, another milestone was reached – I met Damien Hirst! He was in town as the 3 Gagosian galleries in Manhattan (as well as every Gagosian gallery around the world – and there are 11 of them) are showing a retrospective of Damien Hirst’s Spot Paintings from 1986 to 2011. The richest artist in the world was extremely nice when I chatted with him and you C-listers out there should please check your ego against the accomplishments that Damien Hirst has achieved before age 50! Thanks so much Damien for being so cool and the timing of our encounter really could not have been more perfect! It reaffirms that the leap of faith I took by moving to New York continues to pay off. Respect!
