Simplified renderings of the iconic British artist's works: a coloring book for all ages

Damien Hirst: Colouring Book features the British artist’s most iconic works rendered as simple line drawings. Coloring fans of all ages can immerse themselves in themes and motifs found within some of the artist’s most enduring series, including anatomical models, butterflies, medicine cabinets, spin paintings, color charts and kaleidoscope paintings. Featuring Hirst’s most popular images, including "The Incomplete Truth," "Myth," "Loving in a World of Desire," "Hymn," "For the Love of God," "Benevolence" and more, the volume brings some of the most controversial and groundbreaking work of contemporary art to a witty coloring-book format.

Damien Hirst was born in Bristol in 1965, and first came to public attention in 1988 when he conceived and curated Freeze, an exhibition of his own work and that of his contemporaries staged in an abandoned warehouse. Since then, Hirst has become widely recognized as one of the most influential artists of his generation. His work is held in the collections of the Tate Gallery, London; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington DC; The Goss Michael Foundation, Dallas; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and The Broad Art Foundation, California, among others.
