Damien Hirst has created four new limited edition prints to raise money for Save the Children. The initiative is organised in collaboration with Fondazione Prada.

The editions, titled Fruitful and Forever, feature bright, abstract details from Hirst’s new series of Cherry Blossom paintings. Depicting blossom trees in full bloom, the series is inspired by the work of Pierre Bonnard, Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh and the Pointillist innovations of Georges Seurat.

The new limited edition prints show close-up details of the densely layered and colourful dabs of paint from sections of the large-scale canvases. There are two images, each produced in two sizes.

All profits will be donated to Save the Children’s campaign “Riscriviamo il Futuro” (“Rewrite the Future”), which aims to support Italian children from disadvantaged backgrounds who have been affected by school closures during the COVID-19 crisis.

The editions will be available to buy through HENI Leviathan from 16:00 CEST on 15 September until midnight CEST on 27 September. Visit HENI Leviathan for further information.
