The artist who played guitar in the band Correcto alongside Franz Ferdinand drummer Paul Thomson has won the Turner Prize 2009.

Richard Wright, who played on Correcto‘s 2007 self-titled album, picked up the award last night (December 7) at the Tate Britain, where his untitled winning piece of art is on display.

The art is a gold leaf painting on a white wall, and is on display until January 3.
