LANCE ARMSTRONG GETS BUTTERFLIES
In a winning collaboration where art meets sport, artists including KAWS, Shepard Fairey, Kenny Scharf, Marc Newson and Damien Hirst have paired with Lance Armstrong to realize a series of charitable artworks. Now in the final stages of his Tour de France challenge, Armstrong will ride the Damien Hirst bike pictured when he crosses the finish line in Paris July 26th. Complete with the artist's signature butterfly wings and LIVESTRONG logo all proceeds will benefit Armstrong's cancer charity.
