Earlier this month, iconic UK art star Damien Hirst went after Cartrain, a 16-year-old artist who was selling collages containing an image of Hirst's 'For The Love of God'. Hirst demanded that all remaining copies of the work be turned over to him and he also wants $350 in payment. Cartrain told Q he was just trying to make a statement about Hirst.
