Damien Hirst at the Tate Modern

Hirsty boy is on everyone’s lips as his exhibition at the Tate gets people going, even Loose Women on ITV debated his work (blimey!)

The  show begins with some of the artist’s earliest work including his first spot painting made when he was still a student at Goldsmiths, University of London. If you get a chance to head down, have a little nose you may be surprised!

Tracey Emin unveils BA’s new ‘Dove’plane designs

Yes, our loveable mad woman of art comes back on the scene with her new concept which seems to be flying high (har har – poor joke) which can be seen on the British Airways planes.

The outside artwork of the nine ‘Dove’ aircraft has been designed by Pascal Anson, from Brighton, who has been mentored by Emin. The design of the plane, which will be in service for a year, involves using the cockpit for a beak, fuselage and wings for the main body, and the tailfin as a tail. The aircraft will be painted white with gold strokes of paint to represent the feathers.
