Pulp - Jarvis Cocker Lends His Painting To English Gallery

Subscribe Pulp

Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker has loaned a Damien Hirst painting from his private collection to a gallery in his native Sheffield, England in a bid to support future arts funding.
Officials at The Graves Gallery were recently forced to cut staff after losing thousands in regular financing from bosses at the Arts Council of England, and the Common People singer felt compelled to step up and support the struggling organisation.
Gallery executive Eric Hildrew tells Bbc News, "It's great that fans of the city are taking an interest - thanks Jarvis."
The art piece, entitled the Beautiful Morana Dysgeusia Painting for Jarvis, is covered in synthetic diamonds and was created by Hirst for the singer in 2011.
