Henry Hargraves Recreats Damien Hirst's ‘Spot' Paintings

Artist Henry Hargraves has an interesting take on Damien Hirst’s ‘Spot’ paintings. While many in the art world were applauding Hirst’s innumerable circles, it seems Hargraves had a different reaction.

As discussed, Hirst’s Spot paintings were well very well received; so much so that galleries around the world are hosting pieces from the series simultaneously. In short, there are spots everywhere. Henry Hargraves seems to have realized that m&ms are also ubiquitous...and round...and colorful.

Some may consider Henry Hargraves’s work derivative or even derisive. I do not think it is either one of these things. To the former point, one could say that Hargraves’s work is an humorous appendage to Hirst’s original work; to the latter point, one could simply say that is imitation is the finest form flattery.
