H8-2 Fruitful is a signed laminated giclée print on aluminium composite panel produced by renowned contemporary artist, Damien Hirst. Created in 2021, the spectacular print depicts a close-up image of a canvas covered in thick layers of paint. The colourful dabs of paint make up a small section of a larger canvas which invites the viewer to ponder what lies beyond the frame of the composition. This print is the smaller version of H8-1 Fruitful.
H8-2 Fruitful belongs to a series of four limited edition prints, Fruitful and Forever, which were made by Hirst to support Save the Children. The artistic initiative was organised in collaboration with the Fondazione Prada. Each print in the series shows a close-up section of a larger canvas. The print captures the tiny details of the canvas and the incredible texture obtained from layering paint on canvas.
The profits from the series of prints were donated to Save the Children’s Italian campaign “Riscriviamo il Futuro,” translated in English as “Rewrite the Future.” The campaign was launched to support Italian children from disadvantaged backgrounds who were affected by the school closures during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.
