Meaning & Analysis

The print is named after Turps, a magazine about painting, launched in 2003, which aimed to be a publication about painting, written by painters. Turps also has an artist-led painting programme which was set up in 2012 in order to support the development of young artists who wanted quality training.

In Turps Banana, Hirst takes the iconic Turps banana logo, and renders it in a sketch-like manner which differs from many of his other prints such as the Kaleidoscope series or the Spot paintings. The print showcases Hirst’s excellent draughtsmanship and diverse talent as an artist.
