Contemporary British art genius, Damien Hirst – infamous for audiencethrilling art and sculptures – is showcasing his work, the retrospective exhibition, at the Tate Modern, London.

Running for five months, the exhibition includes pieces from the early 1990’s – some of his brightest and most unconventional work – including the Natural History Series, The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living 1991, in which he suspended a shark in formaldehyde, and a two-part installation called, In and Out of Love that has not been shown in its entirety since its creation in 1991.

Other pieces, such as Hirst’s limited edition, ‘Hallucinatory Heads’ – made from plastic – covered in garish coloured household gloss, are available to buy at the bargain price of just £36,800.

The pricey skulls, painted with vivid green, sea blues and striking yellow, would complete any modern interior. However, for those with wallets that wont stretch quite that far, why not create a vibrant living room with a pop of colour – Scrumptious®, Laguna Bay® or even Chartreuse Mix® from our Feature Wall collection are perfect for creating an on-trend gallery look.

But if you still don’t feel inspired, how about taking the bold red that features in Hirst’s butterfly painting (I Am Become Death, Shatterer of Worlds) to help uplift your tired looking front door – we suggest using Pillar Box Red from Sandtex 10 year Exterior Gloss range to help inject some colour to the front of your home.
