Great Expectations Editions – Damien Hirst

3 min read  ·  09 Nov 2023

HENI is delighted to present the physical prints for Great Expectations by Damien Hirst.

Following the collection of 10,000 NFTs that Hirst released in 2021, the Great Expectations physical editions are Diasec-mounted Giclée prints on aluminium composite panel, measuring 80 x 80 cm each. The prints are hand-signed on the front by Damien Hirst.

Holders of a Great Expectations NFT can purchase a print of the artwork featured on their NFT. The prints are priced at $2,500 (plus any applicable taxes). Each NFT can be used only once to purchase a physical print. The NFT will be burned in the process. Each of the editions in the series will be unique.

The purchase window for the Great Expectations prints is open from 9 November 2023 to 18 January 2024 at 17:00 GMT.

Released to holders of The Currency NFTs, the Great Expectations NFT collection contains 10,000 unique artworks made by Damien Hirst. At the centre of these artworks are grids of emoji-like pregnant women whose forms have been constructed from spots of various shapes, sizes and colours taken directly from The Currency artworks themselves. The collection references some of the most iconic imagery from Hirst’s monumental career.

While the structure and basic forms are repeated across the series, each NFT is individualised by colour or unique attributes. The attributes are divided into seven categories, which include accessories, clothes, facial features, hair, headwear, occupation and background. Naturally, some attributes or combinations of attributes are rarer than others.

Each of the Great Expectations NFTs is made unique through its combination of colours or attributes. Each NFT can be used only once to purchase a physical print, which means that each physical edition in the series will be unique. Each print will be numbered on the label and hand-signed by Damien Hirst on the front.
