A piece by Richard Woods at the site TimesOnLine (UK) provided a quote by one of Hirst's early professors.
I had to go to urbandictionary.com to get a meaning for dosh. Sigh. Is it just age? I am sooo out of it.
Richard Wentworth, the sculptor who taught Hirst in the early 1990s at Goldsmith’s College, south London, said: “The art world’s a marketplace, the world is a dosh pit and we’re all in it. We’re coming to the end of a stage in western civilisation of vulgar, vulgar, vulgar. With this sale, Damien has just added one more thing, PS, vulgar!”
As for Hirst’s wealth, Wentworth said: “It’s sweet. It’s like a little boy stamping down the street, yelling, ‘I’m worth a billion dollars’.”
