No stranger to the prerequisites of Gross Anatomy 101, artist Damien Hirst‘s matter-of-fact depictions of death, in various forms, are not only sensational. They force us to confront the frailty of life itself. All the more ideal to have UK-base artist to take part in the CONVERSE PRODUCT(RED) Collection. An off-shoot of PROJECT(RED), portion of the proceeds from the sales of PRODUCT(RED) merchandises will go to Global Fund, a charity program for the fight against AIDS/HIV in Africa. Initially released 2 months ago, the special Chuck Taylor All-Star with Hirst artwork sold out immediately. Mainly due to the fact Hirst’s works sell for millions on average and the canvas top was the most affordable variant.
In light of World AIDS Day on December 1 st, the newly opened CONVERSE Specialty Store in SoHo, NYC launched some of the last Damien Hirst collaboration. Now available in very limited quantity at the store.
