A détente has now been reached in the art war waged by Cartrain, the 17-year-old graffiti artist, against Damien Hirst. The teenager was arrested earlier this year for damaging a £10m Damien Hirst sculpture, after the multi-millionaire artist registered his displeasure at Cartrain's use of Hirst's skull motif in his artwork (and apparently demanded a share of the profits). In retaliation, Cartrain crept into the Tate and stole some "vintage" art pencils from Hirst's "Pharmacy" sculpture early this year (the pilfered pencils were apparently valued at £500,000). Cartrain told me that, happily, all police charges have since been dropped and that he's even had a meeting with the Tate to discuss the issue.What's more, he came face to face with Hirst himself at the latter's current show at London's White Cube gallery. Cartrain said: "He asked me if I was Cartrain to which I replied I was. He explained he was all right with all the publicity and that he wished to speak further. He seemed quite all right at the time but he did make a quick exit."
