Lot Details

Beck's has been one of the biggest supporters of contemporary art. In this first ever 2002 set of Limited Edition glasses, Becks's highlights one of Britain's most famous artist, Damien Hirst, with a painting he created for Beck's in 1995 to celebrate ten years of Beck's and the Arts. Produced in an unnumbered Limited Edition of only 4000, these glasses make a wonderful and affordable Danien Hirst collectible. Comes in the original collectible green Beck's box.

All of Hirst's works contain his ironic wit, and question art's role in contemporary culture as he challenges the boundaries between art and science, and addresses the big questions of life, love, and death. His trademark, highly recognizable spots, which appear everywhere from the Tate shuttle boat in London to aboard the Beagle 2 in outer space, illustrate the fine line between chaos and control. Some of his most sought after pieces are the arrangements of color spots with titles that refer to pharmaceutical chemicals, known as Spot paintings. As Hirst no longer releases Spot painting/prints, this is a rare opportunity to acquire such an iconic representation of the artist's work. The "Opium" trumpet lager glass is a prize Hirst collectible.
