What is Great Expectations?

Great Expectations, the second NFT collection by Damien Hirst, was launched as an airdrop on 25 November 2021. The NFT has been airdropped to all holders of The Currency NFTs.  

The Great Expectations NFT collection contains 10,000 unique artworks made by Damien Hirst. Following on from the artwork that he created for Drake's album cover, the NFTs show grids of emoji-like pregnant women whose forms have been created from spots of various shapes, sizes and colours taken directly from The Currency artworks themselves. The collection references some of the most iconic imagery from Hirst’s monumental career. 

While the structure and basic forms are repeated across the series, each NFT is individualized by colour or unique attributes. No two NFTs in the collection are the same. Naturally, some attributes or combinations of attributes are rarer than others.
