Photo Gallery: Pete Doherty

An exhibition of Pete Doherty's artwork and personal belongings went on show in Camden, London today (February 24), including a painting that features artwork by his late friend, the singer Amy Winehouse.

Doherty was due to attend a Q&A for the show On Blood: A Portrait Of The Artist at The Cob Gallery to talk about the exhibition, although he pulled out at the last minute. However, gallery curator Rachel Chudley spoke in his place, describing how The Libertines man had allowed her team access to his private lock up and said they could use 'anything' for the exhibition.

She described his collection, which includes records, Tony Hancock rarities, The Beatles posters, tunics, guitars, taxidermy, huge flags and a full Subbuteo team - as an 'Aladdin's cave of belongings'. Also among the collection were several AAA passes to NME Awards ceremonies of years gone by.

The exhibition takes place at 205 Royal College St, Camden, and is open to the public from February 26-March 12 between the hours of 12-8pm.
