Damien Hirst

Damien Hirst (b.1965) is a British contemporary artist. His varied practice explores the complex relationships between art, religion, science, life and death.


For The Love of God Believe - Diamond Dust

In Damien Hirst’s world, skulls have a distinct role to play. Like the Memento Mori or the vanitas symbols in the history of art, they portray the artist’s obsession with the inevitability of human mortality.

With For the Love of God, Damien Hirst made the ultimate vanitas, a replica of the skull of a thirty-five year old man from the thirteenth century, covered with platinum, set with 8601 diamonds and a 52,4 carat pink diamond on the forehead. Created by the artist in 2007, this totem offered to God, is a true icon and broke all records to become the most expensive contemporary artwork in the world.

The iconic artwork produced alongside the multi-million pound diamond studded skull. This is the sought after and extremely hard to find silkscreen that has been enhanced with diamond dust.


Framed to museum standards using non reflective, anti UVA glass.

    Sceptic

    In Sceptic, Hirst employs one of his signature motifs: butterflies. Butterflies’ connotation of resurrection gives Hirst’s elaborate butterfly works a special religious overtone. They are arranged into a complex pattern that resemble traditional glass church windows.  

    Why is this rare?  

    Hirst’s butterfly works are well-known and regularly in demand; its relatively low edition size contributes to its desirability – there are just 55 prints in the edition.

    Deckchair- Butterflies

    A pair of very rare deckchairs made of Merpauh timber and with a digital print of Hirst iconic butterflies printed on sail cloth. 

    Each chair bears an aluminium plaque screwed to the frame, with Damien Hirst facsimile signature and trademarks.

    Apart from their rich association with childhood, butterflies are symbols of freedom, the embodiment of living life to the full. Butterflies represent escape – and death (something of an obsession for Hirst) is the ultimate release.  

    Why is this rare?  

    With just 250 in the limited edition, these deckchairs are extremely difficult to come by.  

    (We think they look great framed too!)

    I Get Around and All Around The World

    One of the twenty-three etchings that comprise the first volume of two portfolios, In a Spin, the Action of the World on Things I and II. The artist first coined this phrase in 1999, when he was explaining the origin of his spot paintings, differentiating the two strands of his work: ‘an involvement with death and decay, and ideas and life: the action of the world on things exists somewhere, and the colour exists somewhere else. And it’s fantastic.’ 

    Why is this rare? 

    Each etching was made and signed by the artist in London 2002. There are just 68 sets of prints, drastically increasing their desirability.
