CREATED BY LONG-TIME FRIENDS, RANKIN AND DAMIEN HIRST, MYTHS IS A UNIQUE COLLABORATION OF THE PROLIFIC ARTISTS’ RESPECTIVE CREATIVE MEDIUMS. UNITED BY A SHARED DARK WIT AND INSPIRED BY THEIR CONVERSATIONS AROUND MONSTERS AND LEGENDS, THIS SERIES BRINGS TOGETHER ANCIENT MYTHOLOGY AND CUTTING EDGE CONTEMPORARY ART. DRAGGING THE GODS OF THE UNDERWORLD INTO THE REALM OF SLICK, HYPERREAL FASHION PHOTOTOGRAPHY, EACH MONSTOROUS CREATURE WAS BROUGHT TO LIFE BY MODEL DANI SMITH.

RANKIN AND HIRST LEVERAGE THEIR RESPECTIVE CREATIVE MEDIUMS AND SHARED DARK WIT IN A PROJECT BORN OUT OF A JOINT FASCINATION WITH THE ANCIENT WORLD, AND AN INTEREST IN CONTEXTUALIZING IT IN A MODERN ENVIRONMENT. MYTHS IS AN EXPLORATION OF IMAGINED NARRATIVES AND MONSTERS OF PAST CIVILIZATIONS, VIEWED THROUGH A MODERN LENS.

“I ALWAYS HAVE DREAMS ABOUT MONSTERS, DEVILS AND EVIL: I GET A LOT OF MY IDEAS FROM MY DREAMS. I HAVE A FASCINATION WITH FANTASY AND REALITY, AND BRINGING THE TWO TOGETHER TO MAKE PEOPLE GO, “WOW”. THAT’S WHAT PHOTOGRAPHY IS. IT CAN STEAL YOUR SOUL, IF ONLY FOR A SPLIT SECOND.” - RANKIN


“I ALWAYS TRY TO MAKE ART THAT PEOPLE CAN’T IGNORE. THE KIND OF ART YOU CAN WALK PAST WITHOUT SEEING TERRIFIES ME.” - DAMIEN HIRST
