Spots Car Painting. This was Hirst’s first collaborative work, painted for the Aids charity Crusaid. Paul Simonon was an art student in the mid-1970s before leaving to play bass guitar for the punk band The Clash. Since the demise of The Clash in 1984 he has become a full-time painter. Simonon painted the CitroŽn car and Hirst added his trademark spots over the top. Hirst has produced a series of spot paintings, featuring spots of regular size and distribution, painted on canvases of different shapes and sizes.
