Thom York of Radiohead and artist Stanley Donwood (Dan Rickwood) worked together to create a painting on a 10-foot canvas titled "Business School For The Dead" as part of the Fair Trade protest.

Yorke and Donwood became friends and collaborators as art students at the University of Exeter. Donwood created all the original artwork for all the Radiohead promotional posters and album covers since 1994's "The Bends".

The painting is being auctioned to benefit Trade Justice Movement for $5,500 to $6,300 (£3,500 and £4,000).

“The Trade Justice Movement addresses the fundamental relationships the West has with the rest of the world, which is its trade. One thing that is going to stop a country being on its knees is actually being able to trade effectively with other countries and that is not being allowed to happen because it’s inconvenient for western countries.” Thom Yorke
