Traditional tales of fantasy and fright are adapted for the modern world by artists Damien Hirst and Rankin for the 'Myths, Monsters and Legends' exhibition at Rankin Gallery in Los Angeles, California.

Running from October 13 to November 5, 2011, the exhibition features exciting and thrilling pieces that depict mythical characters and creatures in updated forms. A three-headed monster, shown as a scruffy bald man, and a modern-day Medusa, portrayed by model Dani Smith, are just a couple of the awesome works of art in this series.
