The members of Coldplay, one of the world’s most popular bands, have extended their creative reach with an exhibit of exclusive artwork, now on display through December 2 at the Camden location of Proud Galleries in London. After holding private shows for Sting and Sir Paul McCartney recently, the gallery continues its focus on musicians.
The works for sale include three original paintings and the 8-by-22-foot graffiti wall that became the cover artwork for Coldplay’s platinum-selling album Mylo Xyloto, as well as signed limited-edition prints of the album art. (This is the first time the wall has been seen in public.) The band created each piece in collaboration with album artist Paris, who has been Coldplay’s artist in residence since 2011. All proceeds will benefit Kids Company, an organization that works to combat child poverty in and around London. Art produced by Album Artists; Chalk Farm Rd.; 44-20/7482-3867; proud.co.uk.
