Damien Hirst Mickey

Damien Hirst & Disney

In 2009, Damien Hirst was invited by Disney to create an artwork inspired by Mickey Mouse in his own unique artistic language.

A playful reinterpretation of the artist’s own signature spot paintings, with its centered composition and bold colors, Mickey stands as the culmination of the artist’s spot series which he has pursued continually since 1986. Inspired by the most famous cartoon character of all time, Mickey is an outstanding representation of Damien Hirst’s innovative artistic vision.

The boldly graphic visual presentation of Mickey in Hirst’s iconic spots offers a geometric distillation of the quintessential profile of the famous mouse, representing the artist’s engagement in Pop Culture and traditional themes of academic art.

Damien Hirst’s Mickey achieved an auction record $58,080 USD at Phillips June 11, 2015.
