Artist Damien Hirst has bought a portrait of Paris Hilton made entirely from porn magazine covers for an undisclosed sum.
The Jonathan Yeo artwork was bought by the Brit just before Yeo exhibited his new collection of porn portraits at a former restaurant supply store in the Bowery, New York on Friday (26Sep08).
The other Outsiders exhibits feature Tony Blair, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Rupert Murdoch.
Yeo plans to give Hilton proceeds from the sale of Paris, 2008 as a "lighthearted" gesture.
