Damien Hirst donates 'Beautiful Love Survival'
The world’s most famous living artist, Damien Hirst, has designed a unique work ‘Beautiful Love Survival’, which will be sold to raise money for Survival in his forthcoming sale ‘Beautiful Inside My Head Forever’ at Sotheby’s London on 15 September 2008.
Damien Hirst said, 'I am delighted to be able to support Survival International and their work for threatened tribal peoples around the world – who are too often the ‘forgotten’ peoples.'
Survival is a human rights organisation that helps tribal peoples defend their lives, protect their lands and determine their own futures. It was founded 40 years ago, following an article by Norman Lewis in the Sunday Times magazine about the genocide against Brazilian Indians.
