In 2014, Damien Hirst unveiled a new series of paintings made up of vast numbers of surgical instruments, which combine to form bird’s-eye views of cities from around the world. With the ‘Black Scalpel Cityscapes’, Hirst investigates subjects pertaining to the sometimes-disquieting realities of modern life – surveillance, urbanisation, globalisation and the virtual nature of conflict – as well as those relating to the human condition in general, such as our inability to arrest physical decay.

Described by the artist as ‘portraits of living cities’, the series is here illustrated in full and accompanied by a comprehensive list of artwork details. Also included is an essay by Professor Jerry Brotton – author of A History of the World in Twelve Maps – and a fictional short story by novelist and arts writer Michael Bracewell.
