Herge Meets Hirst / Medium / 1


  • Material: Oil on Canvas
  • Size: 90 x 70
  • Description of the Artwork:
    For years, Feromontana has been working with various modifications and further developments of Damien Hirst’s spot paintings. He is now breaking all the limits of the original idea. Feromontana has been working on the transformation of comic figures into three-dimensional dots for several years with a wide variety of motifs. In 2022 he began to connect the figures with the spot paintings and to create completely new developments. This picture is one of the first works in this series of various interrelated motifs. Unlike in later works, the comic dog Struppi does not break out of the picture here, but rather displaces the spots and squeezes through them into the open. The artwork is one of only very few oil on canvas artworks Feromontana made.
    The artwork was exhibited (and sold) at Discovery Art Fair Frankfurt 2022.
