Damien Hurst Turns to Wine for Some Comic Relief


Notorious Shark Pickler Damien Hurst has designed a brace of wine labels in support of the BBC’s charity event “Red Nose Day”.

"A little too much formaldehyde on the nose for my taste..."

No longer old enough to be classified as an “Enfant Terrible” the infamous taxidermist has returned to his faithful “dot” for the two designs.

Red nose Red Pinotage Shiraz 2008 and Red nose White Chenin Blanc 2008 were produced by SAAM Mountain Vineyards in the South African region of Paarl and selected by first lady of wine Jancis Robinson and Observer wine writer Tim Atkin.

The wines will retail at £4.99 a bottle, with £1 from each bottle sold donated to Comic Relief. Mr Hurst’s wealth is estimated at £200 million and in September a whole collection of the artist’s work fetched £111 million. Wowzers.

Pass me that pair of compasses and some felt tip pens, my muse is a risin’!
