ArtInfo’s round up of the world’s wealthiest artists names Damien Hirst as “likely the world’s richest,” ca-ching-ing up there on par with the collector monarchy with a bounty of $338,000,000. Also: Murakami, Koons, Schnabel, Kapoor and Johns. 

So, how did the hustle get so good? It seems that to be on top you’ve either have to have that one really really expensive painting, been pimped out by Mary Boone or be blinging stuff out Vatican-style all gilded, be-diamoned and sparkly-like.
