Monochromatic Sectors from Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary Colour Ring with Dark Centre - Damien Hirst
Monochromatic Sectors from Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary Colour Ring with Dark Centre - Damien Hirst

Yesterday we brought you news of Damien Hirst donating one of his old paintings to Burger King. Today the artist posts a video of the creation of an entirely new work. It's called Monochromatic Sectors from Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Colour Ring With Dark Centre’ (2012) and you can see the creation of it on the live feed section of Hirst's website. It's quite fascinating to watch the process - the paint being applied, the movement of assistants and the pauses for thought. Apparently it all took place over the period of a month earlier this year and work is continuing on the series. You may want to play 'Where's Hirsty' during the video. . .
