DAMIEN HIRST, SPOT PAINTINGS SHOWING AT 11 LOCATIONS WORLDWIDE

worldwide exhibition is on right now at all 11 of Gagosian Gallery’s locations, featuring hundreds of Damien Hirst’s spot paintings. 

More than 300 paintings will be on display at the various locations, which include: three galleries in New York CIty, two in London and one each in Los Angeles, Paris, Rome, Hong Kong, Athens and Geneva. The exhibition is running through February 10th.

Hirst created his first spot painting in 1986, and his most recent work in spots contains 25,781 spots, each only 1 millimeter in diameter with no single color repeated on the canvas. If you don’t consider that art, consider then what an amazing feat that would be, if nothing else.  A small side note, Hirst freely admits that his army of assistants do most of the painting, as he easily becomes bored with the tedious work. Which is understandable I suppose, I mean who really wants to paint 25,000+ dots if they don’t have to? I wouldn’t.

But never the less, if you find yourself in one of the cities hosting this amazing exhibition, be sure to swing by and check it out.

A 20-year retrospective of his work is also scheduled to open at the Tate Modern Museum in London on April 4th. Some of Hirst’s other works include an 8000+ diamond human skull and a series of small medicine and pill cabinets.
