Washington, September 29 (ANI): Renowned contemporary artist Damien Hirst has bought a porn portrait of Paris Hilton for an undisclosed amount.

Hirst bought the portrait from a fellow British artist, Jonathan Yeo, just before the latter exhibited his new collection porn portraits at a former restaurant supply store in the Bowery, New York on Friday, reports Contactmusic.

Yeo, known for making his artwork from porn magazine images, also features Tony Blair, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Rupert Murdoch as part of the other Outsiders exhibition.

Son of the Conservative MP Tim Yeo, the artist plans to give socialite Hilton proceeds from the sale of the portrait as a lighthearted gesture. (ANI)
