    Fearsome black claws seize a striptease dancer from behind, grasping her shoulder and her face in this stripped-down, graphic image from Paul Insect, aka PINS. Insect reportedly has some big-time fans, with Damien Hirst said to have bought his whole gallery show at London's Lazarides Gallery in 2008-before it even opened.
