News from the Telegraph:
Cartrain, a 17-year-old graffiti artist embroiled in a feud with Damien Hirst, has been arrested after stealing pencils from the millionaire artist’s latest installation. . . .Cartrain then created a parody police poster.
Cartrain visited Hirst’s installation Pharmacy in July, which was being shown as part of Tate Britain’s Classified exhibition until it closed last month, and removed a few of the rare “Faber Castell dated 1990 Mongol 482 Series” pencils.
According to the real police, the Metropolitan Police, the pencils, part of a £10 million installation, are worth £500,000. £500,000 for Mongols? It’s not as if they’re Blackwings.
