The piece was specially created to raise funds for the incredible Kids Company, which provides invaluable support to inner-city children. Kids Co, founded by Camila Batmanghelidjh in 1996, has a long-standing relationship with Hirst who himself grew up in inner-city Leeds. In this video courtesy of the Observer, Hirst and Batmanghelidjh talk about workshops, spot paintings, children and of course, art.
