DAMIEN HIRST CREATES RAINBOW ARTWORK FOR THE NHS

Damien Hirst has created a new rainbow artwork to show support for the NHS in the current Coronavirus crisis.

The work, titled Butterfly Rainbow, is made up of bands of coloured butterfly wings, one of the artist’s best‐known motifs.A limited edition of the work is also being produced which will be sold with all profits donated to the NHS. Further details will be announced on Damien Hirst's Instagram.

Damien Hirst said: “I wanted to do something to pay tribute to the wonderful work NHS staff are doing in hospitals around the country. The rainbow is a sign of hope and I think it is brilliant that parents and children are creating their own version and putting them up in the windows of their homes.”
