Damien Hirst has created a new spin painting for The Women’s Equality Party (WEP) which he drew in green, white and violet to match the colours of WEP’s logo, which in turn match the original colours of Britain’s Suffragette movement.
The work—Spin Drawing for Women’s Equality (2015)—goes on sale at Phillips’ New Now auction in London on 13th April with an enticing £8,000 to £12,000 estimate.
The WEP, focused on gender equality, is non-partisan and therefore open to members of other parties. Since launch it has raised most of its funds through small donations and currently has 45,000 members and supporters
The objectives of the Women’s Equality Party include equal pay and shared opportunities and responsibilities in parenting and care giving. Mayer says that part of their campaign’s funds provides childcare for its candidates.
