Lot description

Running in conjunction with the exhibition's opening, the Damien Hirst Spin Workshop created collaborative paintings, such a this unique shark spin painting on paper, which engaged audience perception, inspiration, and involvement, and ultimately underscores Hirst's artistic philosophies.
