Critical Review

In this print, Minnie is rendered in red, yellow black and blue spots against the sparkling pink glitter backdrop. The print is part of the Mickey Mouse series, a collection of prints inspired by the famous American cartoon series created by Walt Disney in 1928. All the prints in the series are made using spots, making the compositions striking yet simple.

Discussing the symbolism of Mickey Mouse, Hirst explains that the character, and his lifelong companion Minnie are timeless icons. The cartoons have remained ingrained in society's collective cultural consciousness and mean the same in the 21st century as they did decades ago. Hirst elaborates “the thing about Mickey is that even though he’s gone through so many shifts in form and association, he’s timeless.”
