The Spot Series by Damien Hirst is one of his most recognized series, with over 1000 variations (created over the past 25 years) currently in existence. Each version of the edition series is totally unique and handprinted with the intent to look mechanical and systematic in execution. The random and infinite color selections within the ‘Pharmaceutical’ paintings is integral to the works in the iconic Spots series by the contemporary master. Hirst explains that, “Mathematically, with the spot paintings, I probably discovered the most fundamentally important thing in any kind of art. Which is the harmony of where color can exist on its own, interacting with other colors in a perfect format." Any problems he had previously had with color, Hirst claims, were removed by the perfect arrangement of complimentary, yet never repeated, colors in the spots series. This stately artwork comes framed, ready to install with the Arton seal of approval for authenticity, quality and exquisite condition.

“To create that structure, to do those colors, and do nothing. I suddenly got what I wanted. It was just a way of pinning down the joy of color.” - Damien Hirst
