Enter To Win An Exclusive Damien Hirst-Designed Telecaster

In honor of the 10th anniversary of the death of Clash frontman Joe Strummer, British artist Damien Hirst has unveiled two new pieces of art.

Hirst painted a Fender Telecaster and an Eastwood acoustic guitar, both of which will be raffled off with all proceeds going towards Strummerville: The Joe Strummer New Music Foundation, which was set up in the Clash co-founder’s name by his friends and family after his death in 2002 in order to help support unsigned bands and assist youth outreach projects across the UK and beyond.

The Tele is adorned with Hirst’s trademark polka dots, while the acoustic is decorated with a spin-paint treatment.

The winning raffle tickets will be drawn at this year’s Stummer of Love Festival by former bandmate Mick Jones. In the meantime, the guitars will be on display to the general public at Other Criteria gallery in London.

Online tickets will be available here until the gates open at 12 p.m. at the Strummer of Love festival in Somerset, England, on Thursday, Aug. 16.

Tickets will also be available to buy on-site during the festival for £10.00, and the winning tickets will be drawn by Jones on Sunday, Aug. 19th.
