The film, financed by the artist himself, seeks to re-enact the fictional backstory behind the divisive show.

Earlier this week, the streaming service released a mockumentary, “Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable,” that chronicles the fictional story behind Damien Hirst’s two-venue exhibition in Venice last year. The slickly produced film—full of sweeping underwater shots and a swelling soundtrack—was financed by the artist himself, a spokesperson from Hirst’s company, Science Ltd, tells artnet News. “The film is something Damien wanted people to be able to come across in years to come, which explores the backstory of the project,” she says.

Who is the street artist Banksy?

Who is Banksy?

“Graffiti is one of the few tools you have if you have almost nothing.” (Banksy, Artist)

Banksy is a famous – but anonymous – British graffiti artist. He keeps his identity secret! He produces pieces of work which pop up in public places, such as on the walls of buildings.

He quickly became well known as an artist who would poke fun at big companies and send political messages through his work. Read More
