Originally belonging to the British artist Damien Hirst. Damien Steven Hirst is an English artist, entrepreneur, and art collector. He is one of the Young British Artists, who dominated the art scene in the UK during the 1990s. Damien has worn this t-shirt while creating his original oil paintings on canvas. The paint present on the t-shirt (oil paint) has been applied by Damien's own hands.
He has then signed this T-shirt in marker pen on the front as shown in the photos. It has then been framed in a metal frame by Damiens studio as a new work of art. Therefore, capturing the artist at work in an object that effectively transcends the simple t-shirt to my mind. It could also be suggested that it connects / references the concept of ready made art for example, such as the concept, artist Marcel Duchamp was famous for. The framed Dimensions of this item are: 950 x 915 mm (37 x 36 inches).I'd imagine this item could be reframed without too much difficulty, the value is obviously in the item as opposed to the frame and the photos show clearly the exact item you will receive. I acquired this directly from the artist through an instagram contest where Damien asked. Write your best comment about hope. Comment something that keeps you smiling in all this chaos, mayhem and mixed messages. "Hope is the blank canvas, the paint is our dreams, the brush is our actions and the final piece is our reward". Incredibly Damien chose my answer to receive this item which is essentially a museum quality piece of Art and a priceless piece of Art History I believe. To further explore my previous question / point, Damien has recently opened a solo exhibition of his work at his Newport Street Gallery in London that runs between 7.10.20 to 7.3.21 - titled: End of a Century (None of the art is available for sale at this exhibition). End of a Century features installations, sculpture and paintings, some of which have never been seen before. One of the artworks in the exhibition is titled. I'm a huge fan of Damien Hirst, I was born near Leeds where Damien is from and when I lived in Leeds I would visit his work many times in the Leeds art gallery and read the books in the library on him while always being inspired by seeing his work. It is definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity for me to have acquired such an original piece of art directly from Damien himself.
This item represents hope for me, which is obviously the question I originally answered to acquire this. Through these difficult times, I would like to offer this to a collector who would love to own such a unique original work and priceless piece of art history from Damien Hirst. I hope for the sale to allow me to pursue more creative directions myself and to continue the artistic journey Damien has also inspired me to pursue. It is difficult to place a price on the priceless, but serious best offers are warmly welcomed.
This could very well appreciate in value throughout the future I believe, it is clearly not a copy or a print, it is irreplaceable and one of a kind. From the worlds most successful / highest paid living artist. Damiens assistants have painted the majority of his original painting works. The number of works Damien has personally painted is significantly lower. This is a very rare item and a.
Totally unique piece of art that is available to acquire here. This could hang in a major art gallery or in the home of a collector equally well. Maybe you already own original Damien Hirst works of art and you could add this to your collection as a symbol of the artist at work, while being a real conversation starter to compliment your current collection. Or maybe this could be the start of a new Damien Hirst collection? This is something not many people could own.
Imagine for a moment if you will, how many spot paintings are currently out there in the world, painted by Damiens assistants for example. This T-shirt is a piece of the artist himself, a very personal and special piece - it. Testament of a historical document to the way Damien Hirst lived and worked.
Some of the Cherry blossoms can be seen in the photos of this listing. These paintings have been created while wearing this t-shirt at some stage, capturing the artists process through the paint applied to the t-shirts surface.

Thank you for taking the time to read through my description and having a look at this. If you would like to secure this item, I welcome you to make me an offer I can't refuse.I would also like to close this description with a reminder of the answer I gave as to what gives me hope during these times as I believe it's helpful to remember that. Hope is the blank canvas, the paint is our dreams, the brush is our actions and the final piece is our reward.
