The Dead (imperial purple, oriental gold) is a signed foil block print in colours on Arches paper produced by renowned contemporary artist, Damien Hirst. Hirst depicts a floating skull in this print, which he renders in a deep and bold imperial purple. The artist adds splashes of oriental gold which immediately draws the viewer’s attention towards the skull, which dominates the centre of the composition.

I found this Alex Katz on line and am very satisfied—Beautifully packed for shipping
Artwork evaluations that are both honest and fair, as well as extremely dependable and friendly. I'm delighted to encourage collaboration with Hype Museum because we've established a strong and ongoing relationship.
The Hype Museum is highly recommended. He is extremely knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. The communication was excellent. Banksy is my favourite artist!
Outstanding customer service and prompt delivery!
I started interacting with Norio during the first lockdown. Because interest rates were so low, I had little idea what I was doing and was looking for new investment opportunities. Norio was patient and helpful, and he didn't mind when I called with stupid questions. He has gone above and beyond to ensure that prints are delivered safely, and that all payments and purchases are completed quickly and easily. I highly recommend Hype Museum for its excellent customer service.
I sold art through Hype Museum for the first time and found the process to be quite simple. Ichiko, who handled the sale, was extremely helpful throughout, and I would strongly recommend this company based on my experience.
I can't say enough nice things about them. They simplified what should have been a time-consuming and difficult process. Everything went smoothly, from picking up my print to the restoration process and finding me a buyer. Norio is an expert in his field, and he negotiated a fantastic price for my Banksy print. He was always available to answer any questions I had, and his communication skills were exceptional. Thank you, Norio, and everyone else on the Hype Museum team. It's been a pleasure working with you.
Excellent communication skills. The sculpture was delivered in perfect condition. Despite the fact that it was shipped from Spain, it arrived on time. Very reliable. I strongly advise you to do so.
I cannot praise Hype Museum highly enough. From the moment I spoke with Konomi, Ichiko, and Norio, I knew my sale was in good hands. I was nervous at first, but they walked me through the process step by step, kept me updated at all times, and handled my sale professionally. I can say with certainty that this is the best customer service I've ever experienced.
We worked with Norio and Hype Museum and were extremely satisfied with the entire process: flexible, hands-on, accurate, friendly... and incredibly trustworthy. 5 out of 5 stars!
It's difficult to let go of something as valuable as a seller, but Norio made the process simple. Throughout the procedure, I felt safe and protected, and he kept in touch with me. I'm pleased with the results. Thank you very much, gentlemen.
Norio and Ichiko were extremely helpful throughout the process, providing a fair assessment and maintaining complete transparency at all times. Extremely communicative, fair, and honest. Having such excellent service available on a global scale is a breath of fresh air. It is highly recommended that you work with them.
The disadvantage of collecting art has always been the difficulty in moving on from a painting once you've grown tired of it. When you want to sell a "interesting picture," all too often the gallery where you purchased it has either lost interest in it or has "just taken on half a dozen works by that artist" and is unable to help you. The Hype Museum has helped to alleviate that grief. They are on your side and will go above and beyond to find you a buyer who is enthusiastic and trustworthy. If you know exactly what you want, on the other hand, they will go out and find it for you, resulting in you paying a reasonable price. I've purchased and sold art through Hype Museum on several occasions, and each transaction was handled professionally and without incident. They are a pleasure to work with.
I had been looking for a Banksy print for quite some time when I came across Hype Museum. Buying Banksy is not the easiest task in the world, but with Hype Museum, it was a piece of cake. We began with a webchat on MYB's website (at 8 p.m. on Saturday), and I received a Banksy the following Monday. As a customer, I was respected and valued at every step of the way. I wholeheartedly recommend the Hype Museum.
Being efficient and honest is simple. I got a reasonable price for my Banksy. There is no stress. Strongly advised.
