Well, we had to keep a secret a little longer than we wanted to, but finally today, we have been able to announce our exclusive interview and cover story with Banksy, but also get to be on the ground to preview his newest and largest project to date, Dismaland. Set inside an old public swimming pool facility in the English coastal city of Weston-super-Mare, Banksy told us that is situated for the perfect art audience. Let's take a look inside...

We were suprised that this collaboration hadn't happened before, but Damien Hirst has teamed up with the Alexander McQueen team with a special (read: will sell-out fast) collection of skull scarves. McQueen's skull scarf collection has always been one of the late-designer's iconic looks, and the look has always fit Hirst's style of art.

"I can't pretend I'm not in love with Paul Insect a little bit, but not in a gay way," says Damien Hirst. Well, if that isn't the way to kick off our time back in the office this morning, previewing May 2007 cover artist Paul Insect's new show at Opera Gallery in NYC and hearing love poems from Damien Hirst, well, then, we don't know what will do it for us. Insect's Out of Chaos opens this Thursday, November 29.

Finally, we found our Halloween costume. Recently, Damien Hirst's 66-foot bronze sculpture, Verity, was placed/erected/dropped in the coastal town of Ilfracombe, England. That is 66-feet of naked pregnant bronze woman holding a sword aloft standing upon legal books, with half her innards exposed and half her body just fully bronze and naked. For those into language, "verity" means "truth" in Italian.

Damien Hirst's Spot Paintings that are being exhibited at the 11 Gagosian Galieries worldwide have created significant buzz in the art world. Some love the paintings, others have an aversion to what they may imply about the art market itself. EIther way, Hirst's work is a topic of conversation and must be regarded as an influential force in the world of contemporary art.

Way back in the good old days that was August, we noted that Damien Hirst was going to have a mega exhibit across all 11 Gagosian Gallery locations with The Complete Spot Paintings 1986-2011. With Hirst's retrospective at the Tate Modern set to open this April 2012, these January 12, 2012 openings for Spot Paintings should be a good precursor.
