Thom Yorke anti-poverty painting up for auction
An anti-poverty painting by Thom Yorke is up for sale at auction.
Yorke worked with artist Stanley Donwood on the piece, which is called 'Business School For The Dead'. The pair met at university, and since then Donwood and Yorke have created the art for all Radiohead records, Thom Yorke solo projects and promotional posters since 'The Bends' in 1994.
The painting was originally made in 2005 as part of the Make Poverty History campaign. It is being auctioned by Bonhams to raise money for The Trade Justice Movement and is expected to fetch around £4,000.
Tweeting about the sale, Yorke posted a link to the auction house's website writing: "Hope someone in the financial industry buys this, what a novelty to have a painting at auction ha!"
