Jamie Reid: God Save Damien Hirst VERY RARE


In early 2009 L-13 rushed to the aid of a young street urchin known as Cartrain.

He’d exhibited a collage featuring the image of Damien Hirst’s infamous diamond encrusted skull. This led to Hirst’s representatives playing the heavy hand over copyright, had the offending articles removed form exhibition and took £300 of the young urchin.

In response the L-13 started a website called RedRagToABull.com and invited the L-13 artists to design their own artworks featuring the skull. These were sold to raise funds for the Master Cartrain and an open call was put out inviting the general public to also submit copyright bending artworks to be posted on the site. All went well. We gave Cartrain his £300 back, justice was served, fun was had by all, and no one died.

This was Jamie Reid’s submissions for the project which sold out almost immediately. This one has a bit of damage which is probably why we kept it. The mark to the bottom left and slight creasing to a corner could be matted out with a mount when framed though (see the images).
