Critical Review

The grid formation used in London resonates with Hirst’s famous spot paintings in which Hirst arranges multicoloured spots in meticulous grids. Hirst frequently displays a scientific precision in his artworks, blurring the boundaries between art and science. This is most evident in his Medicine Cabinet series, in which Hirst made an installation out of rows of old medicine packets arranged methodically on cabinet shelves.

London is part of a portfolio of eleven prints made by eleven different artists based in London. The images were printed and edited at Coriander Studio in London. The portfolio was conceived of as a portable group exhibition which showcased the work of emerging artists. Hirst’s use of the screen printing technique reflects a general trend amongst the artists who preferred this technique due to its suitability for reproducing appropriated and photographic images.
