Legendary indie band Coldplay have arranged an exclusive exhibition in conjunction with Kids Company – www.kidsco.org.uk – a charity that the group have supported for the last four years.
The show, to open at Proud Galleries, Camden on 29 November, will feature three original paintings on canvas by Coldplay and their Mylo Xyloto artwork collaborator Paris – who is the current Artist in Residence for the band; www.paris1974.com – as well as the original 7m X 2.5m graffiti wall that became the album artwork. A second wall painted by young children from Kids Company and Paris will be displayed alongside Coldplay’s larger wall.
Also available to purchase: three high-quality prints of the Mylo Xyloto album artwork (each a limited edition of 8 and signed by the band); three high-quality album artwork prints (each a limited edition of 650 and signed by Paris); and unseen photographs from Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto world tour taken by Miller (aka Roadie #42), the band’s official tour photographer.
All work is for sale, with 100% of proceeds going to Kids Company, a children’s charity which reaches out to over 17,000 vulnerable young people in the most deprived areas of London. Coldplay’s last public benefit for the charity was in December 2011 when the group were joined by guest artists including Tinie Tempah and Emeli Sandé in a benefit show at the 02 in London.
