Scammells are excited to announce the highlight piece of our upcoming Showcase Auction on May 14th, an original Spin painting by British contemporary artist Damien Hirst.
Created in January 2009 at Hirst's studio in the southern region of Bali, the piece was gifted to Hirst's bodyguard at the time.
The painting received validation from the Hirst Authentication Committee in March 2018.
Damien Hirst is one of the Young British Artists (YBA's) who dominated the art scene in the UK during the 1990's. He is reportedly the worlds richest living artist.
He is famous for such works as “For the Love of God” (2007), a human skull recreated in platinum and adorned with 8,601 diamonds weighing a total of 1,106.18 carats, and “The Physical Impossibilities of Death in the Mind of Someone Living” (1991), a large tiger shark suspended in formaldehyde.
