More information about this artwork

Damien Hirst is one of the most acclaimed multi-disciplinary artists of the last 20 years. His bold and groundbreaking artistic practice explores the fragility of the human condition through a variety of mediums. Hirst’s most controversial and internationally recognized art pieces are sculptural, often featuring formaldehyde-suspended carcasses encased in glass vitrines. His cutting-edge depiction of subjects undergoing death and decay has rendered him a colossal figure in the art world. Throughout his career, Hirst has also produced captivating paintings such as his Kaleidoscope, Spot and his latest Veil series. Moved by an entrepreneurial spirit and a proclivity for spectacle, Hirst has broken several world records as a living artist, becoming one of the most influential and disruptive contemporary artists.

This piece utilizes a technique many may have played with as children – spin art. Being one of 80 pieces created for the portfolio cover of a spin artwork album that comprised 14 different etchings, this hypnotic and vibrantly-colored piece features three lines of typed text amidst an entrancing centrifugal force, challenging our reading.
