Ghost Stories art exhibition coming to London
20 September 2014 7:10 pm
Mila Fürstová's etchings to raise funds for Kids Company


Good evening. Coldplay and Mila Fürstová are proud to announce a Ghost Stories exhibition in aid of Kids Company, which will run from 4 - 7 December this year. It will take place at 17 Osborn St, Shoreditch, London, E1 6TD.

The exhibition will include the original etchings that became the art for the album, as well as never before seen drawings and other interesting materials that Coldplay and Mila used in the album art development.



Works will be for sale at the exhibition, with all proceeds to Kids Company, which works with vulnerable children and young people in London and Bristol.

You can also buy the works in advance - including etchings signed by Mila and the whole band, as well as £25 art prints - from the Album Artists website now.

Coldplay are launching an exhibition of artist Mila Furstova's artwork for their number one album Ghost Stories.
The British group, fronted by Chris Martin, is setting up the London-based show to raise money for children's charity Kids Company.
The display will be open for three days in December this year (14) and all the work will be available for purchase, with prints on sale as well as original pieces.
A picture was posted on the group's Twitter.com page showing Martin signing one of the paintings.
He says, "Sometimes a piece of art looks exactly like you think your song sounds. On Ghost Stories, Mila somehow managed this time and time again. Her etchings showed exactly what we were trying to say."
The news comes amid reports Kids Company, which provides support for disadvantaged children across Britain, is facing closure unless it is given a big funding boost from the British government.

Wow this show is going to be amazing. And what a brilliant and critical charity to be working with. Mila's artwork is one of my favourite parts of the whole vision of GS. It is so passionately detailed and perfect :heart: :uplifting:

She'll just be there on opening night. She has young children, so she can't be there for the rest of the hours. But she'll be there in spirit.
