What at first appears to be black and white aerial images of cities are actually recreations by renowned British artist Damien Hirst using vast number of surgical instruments such as scalpels, razor blades, hooks, iron filings, stitching needles and safety-pins set against black backgrounds. These new “paintings” titled “Black Scalpel Cityscapes” were revealed in an exhibition at White Cube Gallery in São Paolo, Brazil. For this exhibition, Hirst selected 17 cities, which are either sites of recent conflict, cities relating to the artist's own life, or centres of economic, political or religious significance. The selection includes, amongst others, Washington, DC; Rome and the Vatican City; Leeds (where the artist grew up); Beijing; Moscow; New York; and London.
