To mark the opening of twelve weeks of arts events in the capital, The London Evening Standard are featuring an image of ‘Seer’ (2007) on today’s newspaper cover. Part of Hirst’s iconic series of ‘Kaleidoscope’ paintings, the work is made up of the intricate placing of butterfly wings in geometric patterns into household gloss paint.
In addition to the cover artwork, The London Evening Standard is running a nine-page special on The London 2012 Festival in the Arts section. The festival will incorporate over 12,000 events and performances across the UK in celebration of the Olympics.
