How will you spend your television viewing nights now that the Olympics are over? Frankly, I’m at a bit of a loss. To close out the London 2012 Summer Olympics, one of Britain’s most famous artists, Damien Hirst, was invited to re-design the Union Jack. Hirst drew upon his signature spin painting style in red, white and blue to a massive stage. The result? Well, nothing short of a Damien Hirst explosion of course, set in the background of London’s finest. Shall we look forward to Russia’s 2014 Winter Olympics? Where do you think you’ll be then?
