Russian child star turned “crypto-socialite” has won the Damien Hirst’s treasure hunt for rich people who like dots, that is, he visited all of the simultaneous “Spot Painting” exhibits at 11 Gagosian Galleries in 8 countries to get a free limited edition Spot print. There are two other winners so far, Fast Company journalist Jeff Chu and Arrested Motion founder Tan Wong, but they’re not the ones doing obnoxious duckface — not be confused with #SHARKFACE — with Damien.
Valentin’s trip from New York, to Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Athens, Rome Geneva, Paris, and London cost anywhere between $5,768 to $108,572. Looks like Valentine — 1/2 awkwardly chummy step-sibling duo of failed socialite gossip blog fame — documented the trip on his art site, extensively.
I thought one’s more than enough, but maybe I just don’t know how to party, right, Valentin?
