Pete Doherty’s ‘blood art’ sale

Art work by ex-Libertines singer Pete Doherty — including pieces created with his own blood — are expected to raise tens of thousands of pounds when they go under the hammer.

A collection of paintings, trinkets, clothes, and guitars belonging to the 33-year-old will go on sale on Friday at the Cob Gallery in London, where the works were recently exhibited as ‘On Blood: A Portrait of the Artist’.

‘Ladylike’ is a self-portrait by Amy Winehouse, which she also created with her own blood. The standout piece, it is expected to raise between £50,000 and £80,000 (€62,000 and €100,000).
