Leading British artist Damien Hirst has created four new limited edition prints to raise money for Save the Children’s project “Riscriviamo il futuro” (Rewrite the future), supported by Fondazione Prada. The project aims to support Italian children from disadvantaged backgrounds who have been affected by school closures during the COVID19 crisis.

Get this what’s happening, I’m announcing that I’ve teamed up with the great @fondazioneprada to make a new set of charity editions to raise money for @savethechildrenitalia. These 2 works are called ‘Fruitful’ and ‘Forever’ and they’re based on colourful details from my Cherry Blossom paintings. I’ve made them in two sizes, just like I did with the butterfly rainbows and hearts. . The prints are eye popping and can be bought via @Heni Leviathan, see link in my bio. All profits will go to Save the Children to help with their Rewrite the Future project and the great work they’re doing with kids in Italy. You can buy them up until midnight on 27th September and like last time the edition size will be limited to the prints ordered in this time.
The editions, titled Fruitful and Forever, feature bright, abstract details from Hirst’s new series of Cherry Blossoms paintings. Depicting blossom trees in full bloom, the series is inspired by the work of Pierre Bonnard, Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh and the Pointillist innovations of Georges Seurat. The new limited edition prints show close-up details of the densely layered and colourful dabs of paint from sections of the large-scale canvases.
The editions are available to buy through HENI Leviathan from Tuesday 15 September until Sunday 27 September 2020. Each image is available in two sizes (39 x 39 cm and 78 x 78 cm) and priced at EUR 400 and EUR 1,200 respectively. To purchase the prints, visit leviathan.heni.com.
