Well now we don't have to go to a gallery to check out one of Damien Hirst's original paintings, we just have to go to the Burger King on Leicester Square, London, whom Hirst donated the painting to. The painting is said to be put behind reinforced glass to stop people from damaging it with food or any other way you can mess up a work of art while at at fast food restaurant (lol). "All of our new look restaurants will provide a more modern experience… In the case of Leicester Square, we've given Londoners and guests to the capital a little something extra to enjoy!" Said Jo Blundell, Burger King UK Ltd Marketing Director for the UK and Ireland about the donation. The 2 meter wide painting is an amazing donation and next time Im in London Im definitely stopping by.
