R.I.P. JOHN UPDIKE & DAMIEN HIRST




Today a literary giant has fallen. John Updike passed away this morning after a long battle with lung cancer, leaving behind a legacy of contemporary classics and a lifetime achievement award for badly written sex. Rest in peace Mr. Updike.

As for Damien Hirst, well, leave that to Eugenio Merino's upcoming ARCO Madrid exhibit 4 The Love of Go(l)d.




"Damien Hirst commits suicide so his works will increase in price..."
One could only hope.
