Pete Doherty is set to sell blood paintings for up to ?50,000 each.
The Babyshambles frontman – who used his own blood to create the collection – wants to show supermodel lover Kate Moss he is back on track following his reported arrest on suspicion of drug possession earlier this month.
Pete?s artwork, which features self-portraits and a bloodstained crucifixion scene, goes on sale at London?s trendy Bankrobber gallery.
There are 14 main items, including four canvasses that are expected to make ?50,000. The smaller pieces could fetch up to ?20,000, while the prints are priced at ?1,000.
The troubled rocker?s artwork has angered anti-drug campaigners who have accused him of “glamorising” his heroin addiction.
A spokesman for drug rehab service Narconon said: “Families who have lost loved ones to heroin will be upset. It glamorises drug use.”
Pete?s former Libertines bandmate Carl Barat has spoken of his concern for the 28-year-old and has begged him to give up drugs before it is too late.
He said: “I don?t think he will ever change. I love Pete like a brother and I am working with him again. But he could end up dead in a few years if he doesn?t sort himself out.”
Pete?s problems with drugs are a big trouble for his relationship with model Kate Moss, who recently said she wants to have a child with him but I am not so sure she still has such an ambition. So for Pete is really important to solve this problem.
