Camel Light Artist’s Series edition by Damien Hirst
Created in 2002
Pack of cigarets, still sealed in original wrapping
Damien Hirst has done sharks, pigs and cows. Now he’s trying Camels. Teaming up with an industry that has attracted even more outraged criticism than he has, the British artist has designed packaging for a box of Camel cigarettes as part of R.J. Reynolds’ “artists’ packs” program. His festive red box is aflutter with butterflies, with a blue Camel logo arching across the flap.
