Mickey (blue glitter) is a silkscreen print with glitter producedby renowned contemporary artist, Damien Hirst. Made in 2016, the print depicts the universally recognised cartoon character, Mickey Mouse. Mickey Mouse is rendered in Hirst’s signature style, with his body being composed of spots, resonating with the artist’s famous Spot paintings. Hirst uses large circles and spots to reproduce the iconic cartoon. Hirst maintains the conventional colour scheme of red, yellow, black and white and sets the image against a glittering blue backdrop.
The print is part of the Mickey Mouse series, a body of prints all of which are inspired by the famous American cartoon series created by Walt Disney in 1928. Hirst was asked by Disney to remake an image of the cartoon character using his renowned painterly language and infamous visual style.
Hirst was drawn to Mickey Mouse and his ingrained place in society’s collective cultural consciousness. The artist explains: “the thing about Mickey is that even though he’s gone through so many shifts in form and association, he’s timeless.” Despite Hirst’s innovative style, Mickey is immediately recognisable in this print and the use of spots creates a striking yet simple print. Hirst adds “I love that the imagery is so powerful that it only takes twelve different coloured dots to create something so instantly recognisable.”
