Two Birds With Blossom (small) is a signed lithograph print produced by renowned contemporary artist, Damien Hirst. The print depicts two parrots, one of which is behind a vitrine. The other parrot is sitting freely on top of a wooden column, shaped like a tree branch. The birds are accompanied by a blossoming branch which lies on the blue floor. The print is rendered in vibrant and bold colours, with the parrot’s red feathers seizing the viewer’s attention. The birds are set against a plain white backdrop.
The print was made in 2012 to celebrate the occasion of Hirst’s exhibition, Two Weeks One Summer, which was on display at the White Cube Bermondsey in 2012. The work showcases Hirst’s excellent draughtsmanship, demonstrating how the artist excels at drawing, as well as producing innovative and daring installations.
The vitrine surrounding the bird is a reference to Hirst’s earlier installations, such as A Thousand Years, made in 1990, which was an installation composed of a pair of interlinked glass cells which hosted a colony of flies that were feeding off a rotting cow’s head.
