Thom Yorke painting auction
Business School for the Dead – Thom Yorke and fellow Exeter University student Stanley Donwood’s 2005 artwork

The acrylic on canvas, which the pair collaborated on in 2005 for the Trade Justice Movement (a facet of the Make Poverty History campaign), is estimated to be worth £3,500-4,000 ($5,500-6,300).

Proceeds from the sale of the artwork, which features skeletons, a bleeding briefcase, a man with a dollar sign in his head and the words "BUSINESS SCHOOL FOR THE DEAD", are to benefit the Trade Justice Movement.

Yorke informed his followers over social networking site Twitter: "Hope someone in the financial industry buys this, what a novelty to have a painting at auction ha!"
