Polka Dot Art: 3 Iconic Pictures of Polka Dot Art
For a while now I’ve been fascinated by polka dot Art and just recently two of Damien Hirst’s polka dot pieces were stolen from a gallery in London. It resurfaced my research into polka dot art and led to this blog post containing 3 iconic pictures of polka dot art. The first being from an obsessive polka dot artist.
Yayoi Kusama is a polka dot artist. Even at times seen wearing polka dot dresses. This piece is known as the Obliteration Room.
Damien Hirst is well known for his “spot paintings”. Also referred to as polka dot paintings by some. This piece is called Zomepirac and is of the same style as many similar paintings in his collection.
There’s a theory that Banksy is Damien Hirst or Damien Hirst is Banksy. These kinds of paintings which are like collab of both artists styles give more reason to believe this. This piece is street art, with the famous Banksy rat painting over a Damien Hirst polka dot.
