Celeb Art Auction for NI Victims

A striking self-portrait by the actor John Hurt is among more than 50 works of art by celebrities who, in the name of charity, were simply handed a canvas and told to give their imaginations free rein. Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Marc Quinn, Robbie Williams, Jude Law, Chris Evans, Billie Piper, Joan Rivers and Rio Ferdinand are among professional and amateur artists whose works will be auctioned to raise funds for Wave, a charity dedicated to supporting people bereaved or traumatised by violence in Northern Ireland. Hurt's self-portrait took two weeks and is valued at £20,000. For the full story - click the title Irish Art
