Coldplay's Mylo Xyloto Artwork: Band Sells Paintings For Charity

Oct 16, 2012 | Updated Oct 16, 2012

Coldplay is giving fans the chance to purchase unique pieces of band memorabilia and contribute to a good cause. The British band announced plans on their website for an art exhibition to benefit Kids Company, a London-based charity that provides services to at-risk youth.

The exhibition features original paintings by Coldplay and the band's artist-in-residence, Paris, including the 23' x 8' graffiti wall that was used as the album cover for "Mylo Xyloto."

“Kids Company is a phenomenal organization that is very close to our hearts," frontman Chris Martin said in the announcement. "While we were making the last album we did quite a lot of painting with our friend Paris. We built a special wall in our studio and sprayed it, wrote on it and threw things at it until it eventually became the artwork for 'Mylo Xyloto.' This exhibition will be the first time that the wall has appeared in public."

Other items up for sale include prints of the album artwork signed by the members of Coldplay, exclusive photographs from the band's world tour, and album artwork signed by Paris. If you can't make it out to London for the occasion, the art is also available for purchase online.
