Damien Hirst has been rumored to be collaborating with luxe cell phone brand.
“Not everyone can own a diamond encrusted skull, but everyone wants a piece of Damien Hirst’s aesthetic. The star artist is rumored to be collaborating on a project with Vertu, purveyor of wildly expensive luxe handcrafted mobile phones with jeweled buttons and other uber-pricey details.”

It’s always nice to see when normally far-reaching magazines take a step towards including more culture. This is the second time I can remember Time covering street art, the first was when US street art had more energy. Now it is all about London.

CIRCA 2012: Ruminations on a Changing World
The opening soiree will be held outside White Box, 525 West 26 Street, NYC on Thursday, July 17th from 6 to 11 pm.
Exhibition Dates: July 17th – 22nd, 2008
“CIRCA 2012: Ruminations on a Changing World is Holleman’s apocalyptic vision of the world once man has brought it to its final ruins. The largest element of the exhibition is TRASHNAMI!: a massive-scale cresting tidal wave comprised of trash bags that threatens to engulf the exhibition space. The space will be flagged by several large painted murals and smaller motorized sculptures, which will be operated by the audience during opening night. In addition, Holleman will roll out her winning piece, Trailer Park, a complete 10×14 ft trailer that has been converted into a mobile public park, for the evening.”
