Damien Hirst, The Explosion - Exalted (2006, Gagosian Gallery)
Butterflies and household gloss on canvas (84 inches in diameter)
Bad boy British artist Damien Hirst's latest exhibit of butterfly paintings, Superstition, will open simultaneously at Gagosian Gallery, in London and also in L.A. These are real butterflies; the images are incredible. He was apparently inspired by stained glass windows: poor butterflies! See more images at supertouch.
