"Beautiful Lakshmi Nirvana Painting"
Could I say more to describe Damien Hirst's painting at the Blanton??? This work attracts visitors with its size, vibrant colors, and its use of a skull for subject matter. Morbid, but bright (thus happy.) It has its work cut out for itself as it vies for attention in a gallery full of big names such as Conrad Bakker, Marilyn Minter, Anselm Kiefer, etc. After all, taking the place of our Kehinde Wiley is no small task.
Watch a video with him and his art (please excuse the techno beats!)
And of course, SHOP at Other Criteria - a company Hirst help found and works with!
I'm sooo happy that the Grisebaums loaned this one to the Blanton!
