Damien Hirst Unveils Exclusive Print Series, "The Secrets"

Renowned artist Damien Hirst has recently unveiled a limited edition print series, aptly titled "The Secrets." This collection comprises eight unique prints, each offering a captivating glimpse into flourishing gardens inspired by his latest masterpiece series, "The Secret Gardens Paintings." These extraordinary editions where released in London in January 2024 as a timed release.


Crafted with precision, "The Secrets" editions are lustrous Giclée prints expertly laminated onto aluminium composite panels, measuring an impressive 120 x 93 cm each. These exquisite artworks are numbered and hand-signed by the artist himself. The number of editions in circulation will be determined by the demand witnessed during the drop window, making each one a unique and coveted treasure for art enthusiasts with the drop closing on 5 February 2024 at 17:00 GMT.


The genesis of "The Secrets" editions lies in Hirst's most recent artistic endeavour, "The Secret Gardens Paintings" of 2023. These vibrant and diverse paintings capture the essence of thriving landscapes adorned with a profusion of blossoms, revealing an intriguing evolution in Hirst's artistic journey. Throughout his career, he has persistently explored the interplay between realism and abstraction, and in this series, he delves deep into the intricate relationship between humanity and the environment. Hirst himself describes these works as a reflection of the "hope and futility we experience when attempting to control nature."


The "Secret Gardens Paintings" made their debut at Frieze London in 2023, commemorating the 20th anniversary of this esteemed art fair. A selection of these remarkable paintings will soon grace the galleries of Château La Coste from March 2nd to June 23rd, 2024, as part of a major exhibition entitled "The Light That Shines," featuring an array of Hirst's sculptures and paintings.


For art aficionados eager to experience "The Secrets" series in person, the HENI Gallery, situated at 1st Floor, 6–10 Lexington St, London W1F 0LB, offers a delightful opportunity. The gallery doors are open to visitors seven days a week, from 10am to 6pm, and admission is free, with no appointment necessary.
