About the Artwork

Both festive and enticing, this new and vibrant spot variation represents Hirst's signature Spot series.
The delightful contrast between the twenty-four different pure colors of the spots and the striking bronze glitters offers a spectacular and refreshing visual impact and also celebrates Damien Hirst’s thirst for experimenting with the latest techniques of print making.

"It’s a scientific approach to painting in a similar way to the drug companies’ scientific approach to life."

Damien Hirst

The texture of this metallic Spot print is juxtaposed with the opaque, pure colors of the print. It is in these series, according to Hirst, he discovered one of the most fundamental things in art - the harmony of where colour can exist on its own, interacting with other colors in a perfect format.
