In an effort to express his artistic talents, an artist has collected hundreds of dead insects and created art out of it.

48-year-old Damien Hirst, has finally finished his controversial piece of art. He has started working on the project several years ago.

Hirst collected hundreds of dead insects. He used the insects to make intricate geometric shapes on canvas. He placed the insect into gloss paint and then arranged the patterns.

In 1984, Hirst moved to London, where he worked in construction before getting his degree in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College in 1989.

In 1995, Hirst was awarded the Turner Prize. The Turner Prize is an annual prize presented to a British visual artist. Since its beginnings in 1984, it has become the United Kingdom's most publicized art award.

Since the late 1980s, Hirst has used a variety of sculptures paintings and drawing to explore the complex relationships between art, life and death.
