Skull fans rejoice. There are skulls.

CONTROVERSIAL BRITISH ARTIST Damien Hirst is unveiling his first solo retrospective at London’s Tate Modern tomorrow.

The 46-year-old conceptual artist may be one of the most famous in modern times, but he is also one of the most widely-criticised.

Although pieces like The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living brought him renown, Hist has also been dismissed as a fraud for employing assistants to turn his concepts into artworks.

The retrospective opening tomorrow (4 April) will run until 9 September and consists of 73 works made over a 22-year-period.
