Other Criteria sells out of British artist Damien Hirst's works at Art Central Hong Kong
Damien Hirst, Mickey (blue glitter).

NEW YORK, NY.- Other Criteria announced strong sales following its presence at Art Central Hong Kong, the company’s second showing at the Hong Kong- based art fair. The company confirms that it had sold out of its entire editions of large and small scale “Mickey” and “Minnie” silkscreen prints with glitter by Damien Hirst. Printed in editions of 50 (large) and 150 (small) of each character, the release of the edition was timed to coincide with the company’s presence at the art fair. Other Criteria further stated that the portions of the editions allotted to Art Central Hong Kong sold out during the fair’s VIP opening on March 21st, with the London and New York allotments following the same path two days later.

These prints see Hirst playfully reimagining Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse as part of his iconic series of spot paintings. In offering his own interpretation of Disney’s best- loved characters, Hirst follows in the footsteps of artists including Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Claes Oldenburg. He explains: “They represent happiness and the joy of being a kid and I have reduced his shapes down to the basic elements of a few simple spots...”

Conceived in 1986, the spot paintings are amongst Hirst’s most widely recognized works. Intended as a conceptually endless series, the paintings consist of grids of spots in a random and in nine series of colors, each unique within the painting. Hirst credits the paintings with enabling him to discover: “probably the most fundamentally important thing in any kind of art: the harmony of where color can exist on its own, interacting with other colors in a perfect format.”

Founded by Damien Hirst, Other Criteria is an arts-based publishing company that collaborates with both established and emerging artists to produce limited-edition prints, books, and artworks in a range of different media, including photographs, clothing, sculptural works and jewelry. Other Criteria has an international presence at art fairs around the world, including Art Rio, Art Miami, Mexico City’s Zona Maco, Expo Chicago, New York’s Art on Paper, and the NY Art Book Fair, among others.
