Published as a set of four giclée prints on aluminium composite panels in varying edition sizes, the H-7 series by Damien Hirst was made in 2020 as a direct response to the Covid-19 pandemic. The prints in the series come in two variations, a butterfly rainbow and a butterfly heart.

The H-7 series was produced in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic in order to pay homage to the NHS and the tremendous hard work and sacrifices NHS staff made during the pandemic. Both prints use the rainbow design which has become associated with the NHS and their Covid-19 response. The rainbow was used throughout the pandemic by the public to show their solidarity with people working on the frontline and Hirst adds that, “the rainbow is a sign of hope.” In using this design, Hirst makes a statement showing his support for and admiration of frontline workers and the NHS. The prints in the H-7 series were made to raise money for charity during the pandemic. Profits of the prints went to charities such as The Felix Project, London’s largest surplus food distributor which delivers food to vulnerable people across the UK. When discussing his inspiration for the series, Hirst explains: “I wanted to do something to pay tribute to the wonderful work NHS staff are doing in hospitals around the country.”
