You can`t go anywhere in London without sampling a unique piece of art or culture, as evidenced by a Burger King joint in Leicester Square, where a Damien Hirst painting hangs for passing customers to marvel.
The celebrated artist, a friend of the franchisee who owns the location, has lent the aptly titled Flame Grilled Painting to the eatery until the end of the year.
Valued at a cool £150,000 to £400,000 by Sotheby`s in 2008, the painting is the second work to be installed in a London restaurant by Mr Hirst, after a Hereford cow and cockerel preserved in a steel and glass tank of formaldehyde was introduced to the Tramshed.
Providing customers with an innovative new eating experience, it highlights the city`s penchant for embracing the arts during this great British summer of sport. Should you be planning a stay in one of the fine London hotels
this year for the Olympics, be sure to drop by and take in this fantastic piece of artwork for free whilst tucking into a delicious burger.
