New to Imitate Modern Walls: Damien Hirst, Romero Britto, Nick Waplington And Arman

To set off the new year we are welcoming four new exciting pieces to the Imitate Modern walls. We present artworks from some great international artists; Damien Hirst, Romero Britto, Nick Waplington and the late great Arman. 

 

Damien Hirst
‘Spin for Ben’

72cm (diameter)

‘Spin for Ben’ is an acrylic piece produced by Hirst on paper, commissioned by Ben Kealey, keyboard and synth player of English Rock band Kasabian. The painting is part of a larger project that began in Hirst’s Brixton studio in 1992, but was truly realised when he had a spin machine made whilst in Berlin. The painting’s fast moving colours and somewhat random arrangement play into the artist’s interest in ‘the action of the world on things.’ 

Hirst claims he was inspired by John Noakes’ motorised cardboard spinning machine whilst sitting in a living room in Leeds watching Blue Peter in 1975. Noakes said the activity was for those children “who like to paint, but are one of those people who never really knows what to draw.”

Romero Britto, Real Love (Green Series), Imitate Modern

Romero Britto
‘Real Love’ (Green Series)

Mixed media giclee on canvas
30 x 30 inches

Before Kate Middleton and Prince William get over shadowed by Prince Harry and soon to be wife Meghan Markle, we thought we’d throw a bit more light on the future King. This giclee screen print by Brazilian born, Miami made and worldwide influencer Romero Britto is typical of his Pop Art inspired work. Romero’s iconic style of bold colours, warmth and bountiful optimism have lead his works to be installed globally. He is the first living artist to exhibit at Museo Soumaya and stakes claim to the largest monumental sculpture -‘Pyramid’- exhibited in London’s Hyde Park.

Romero admits his fascination with the Royal couple and their role to play in current and future culture; the piece was completed in the style of the official engagement photograph.

Nick Waplington
‘A Vertical Answer to a Horizontal Question’

Acrylic on canvas
120 x 150 cm

Hanging alongside the previously mentioned artists we are proud to present  ‘A Vertical Answer to a Horizontal Question’ by Nick Waplington. A world renowned photographer, he was the first living artist to have a solo photographic show at the Tate Modern. For the book project entitled ‘Working Progress’ he collaborated with Alexander McQueen, comparing the creative process of himself and McQueen.

Waplington has brought his creative eye to the canvas, using acrylics and expressing internal chaos, compared to his photographs which he states deal with the external world around him. His series of paintings explore the moment in society in which the pressure is so high, everything starts to implode.
