The world's biggest-earning artist also welcomed the downturn that has hit auction rooms in recent weeks, describing it as "quite good" that prices were receding. (well as a multi millionaire, he can afford to say that cant he!!)
In September a ground-breaking sale of his new works fetched £111million at Sotheby's, with the top lot The Golden Calf selling for more than £10m alone.
But the 43-year-old multi-millionaire said that one painting of four skulls, that failed to sell in New York last week, was priced too high.
Beautiful Artemis Thor Neptune Odin Delusional Sapphic Inspirational Hypnosis Painting, had been estimated to sell for up to £2m.
But Hirst told The Independent the painting "was overpriced" adding: "It was bought from me less than a year ago at half the price." (in other words he has the prick, because "art" dealers are making too much out of his work)
He said that the fall in prices at auction was "quite good ... because it became unreal". (No Damon you are fucking unreal)
"You start to think you are touched by God. (See told you so!) I have always thought that art is worth what the next guy is prepared to pay."
That was part of his reason for wanting to bring more than 200 new works straight to Sotheby's rather than selling them at fixed prices through galleries.
He went on to say that he would be likely to sell his works at lower prices in the future to reflect the economic climate.
"If I want to sell new work, I'll price it lower," he said. (That is the best way to get back at those profiteering art dealers isn't it lovey)
"If people have got less money, you can either just shut your door and say, 'Screw everybody' or I can wait until everyone can afford my work or price it cheaper." (Please do us all a favor and STOP)
