Damien Hirst accused

Damien Hirst (2000) or Robert Dixon (1984)?Spot the difference. One of these works is Valium (2000) by Damien Hirst; the other is True Daisy (1984) by computer graphics artist Robert Dixon, whose monochrome design was published in the Penguin Dictionary Of Curious And Interesting Geometry in 1991. It's plagiarism, complains Dixon. So? Why should Moneybags Hirst bother to be original? All he has to do is put his name to something and rich idiots fall over one another trying to buy it. Moneybags has been successfully sued before, but he's laughing all the way to the bank. (White Cube is Moneybags' dealer!)

I am underwhelmed.

The optical illusions going round the net are much better.

Fully agree. Why on earth would some idiot pay Hirst's prices for something this ordinary AND COPIED! Beyond belief.
