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 and university and Donwood has created all Radiohead and Thom Yorke solo projects album art 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The painting was originally made in 2005 as part of the Make Poverty History campaign.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!"

Meanwhile, Thom Yorke's current project Atoms For Peace is preparing to play three UK live shows as part of a European tour set to take place in July.
