MERINO

Eugenio Merino (1975-). Spanish artist.
I want to show these two works that I hold to be differently interesting. The first points out Hirst obsession for money (Damien Hirst is a far too rich and famous British artist), he is a court jester or money servant, but it is better to use the word buffoon; Merino depicted him while committing suicide just in order to overvalue his works of art, in fact the title is "4 the love of Go(l)d".  The title of the second Merino's work is "Stairway to Heaven". It can be considered as pretty funny, but perhaps I'd have changed the position of the three figures or introduced variations.
