Have you seen the flowers on the cover of the Independent newspaper today? This beautiful image has been created by acclaimed artist and John Moores judge, Gary Hume to help raise awarness about World Aids Day. Elton John is involved in editing the paper today and as Gary is one of his favourite artists, it's no surprise that he asked him to produce a piece of work for the cover.
Gary is also producing a limited edition of 100 prints of the front-page image, signed by the artist and Elton John, on sale for £1,000. But if your pockets are feeling the pinch, you can easily get your own piece of work by Gary Hume in the form of a lovely John Moores 2010 enamel badge!Gary created the design for the badge specifically for the John Moores 2010 exhibition and all profits go back into funding future exhibitions. They are a snip at £9.95 and you can only buy them from the Walker Art Gallery shop. You'll also get a free John Moores tote bag with every badge. So if you know someone arty, pop one of these in their stocking and you're bound to give them a nice surprise on Christmas Day!
