A campaign against Damien Hirst?

A collage by Cartrain.

The story involving Damien Hirst and his copyright infringement allegations against a 16 year old street artist-- known as Cartrain-- has taken a twist. Several influential UK artists have joined forces in order to defend Cartrain. In doing so they have targeted the contradictory nature of Hirst’s decision to seek legal action against Cartrain. After all, Damien Hirst has allegedly infringed on copyright himself-- in one case he settled out of court due to copyright infringement allegations.

The battle charge against Damien Hirst has been spearheaded by Jamie Reid -- widely known for creating the Sex Pistol‘s ‘God Save the Queen‘ cover art, Jimmy Cauty -- a former member of KLF, and Billy Childish -- co-founder and former member of the Stuckists. Needless to say, they want others to join the front lines.

Digital Art Research

This is awesome.

Check it out!

So, I've started to get in to knowing more about what I'm doing. I've started to research the history and current trends in digital art as well as keep abreast of what's going on in the realms of contemporary and conceptual.

I've looked in to the New York Digital Salon, and I've ordered some books as an early birthday present to myself on digital art. Can anyone guide me to information or artists I should know?

This is what I bought:

"Art of the Digital Age"
Bruce Wands

"New Media Art (Taschen Basic Art Series)"
Mark Tribe

The 2002 Whitney biennial must've been mind blowing as everyone I've read about in the field seems to have been represented.

I'm very interested in knowing more about Digital Art, which Galleries work with Digital Artists, what they expect, which artists have been outstandingly influential, etc. Any help would be appreciated.

My work is about my life as a person with a disability, I use both humor and seriousness as away of dissecting and examining the world in which both you and I live in. I frequently cite and use history, my personal life and the experiences of others as a means of questioning and re-examining our societies view point on the concept that is normalcy.
