Richard Wright from the band Correcto was last night announced winner of the Turner Prize 2009.

Wright beat favourite Roger Hiorns, who was expected to grab the Turner after he covered every surface of the interior of a bedsit in London?s east end with crystallised copper sulphate

Wright’s untitled wall painting, complete with gold leaf detail will be on display at the Tate Britain until 3rd January for those that missed it.

Richard also did all the artwork for his band Correcto’s self titled album which came out on Domino in 2007.
