Hirst describes his spin paintings, the psychedelic compositions that harken back to his youth in the 1960s, as “childish…in the positive sense of the word.” By the mid 1990s, spin paintings formed an integral part of his work and a spin machine in his Berlin studio allowed him to further play with the process. Since then, his spinning works have become as iconic as his meticulous spot paintings.

About Damien HirstView Profile »
Damien Hirst (b. 1965) is a British artist best known for his leading role in the Young British Artist (YBA) movement of the 1990s. Hirst’s artistic practice varies wildly—from dead animals submerged in formaldehyde, to pristine, ominous medicine cabinets, to the pharmaceutically poppy, menacingly hollow spot paintings—but his key themes are life’s mortality and modern science’s palliative, seductive allure. Rising from the British recession of the 1990s, his middle-class artistic persona melds the antagonism and shock of British punk rock with the showmanship and audacious capitalism of Andy Warhol.Interested in consigning works by Damien Hirst?
