Damien Hirst in London

I have just come back from London where I was sourcing for our shop, Abi & Scarlett....
Whilst i was there I went to see the Damien Hirst exhibition at Tate Modern, and found a new found respect for this artist, whose main preoccupation is with the cycle of death whilst also exploring colour. 
Definitely worth a visit if passing through the big smoke

Particularly love these butterfly works - intriciately executed using thousands of butterfly wings and they are literally the size of stained glass windows

As part of the installation, viewers pass through a room of live butterflies – hatching, mating, laying eggs and eventually dying.
