A Forca Da Rua -

A good friend of mine, Mr Terence Teh, is involved in the Forca Da Rua exhibition at The Print Space on London's Kingsland Road. I have just come back from the private view and was really impressed with what I saw.

Forca Da Rua - which translates to Force of the Streets - is an exhibition hosted by The Action for Brazil's Children's Trust and features 12 specially painted iconic GIbson guitars, which will be auctioned off next week (29th April) to raise money for the trust. There are also a selection of limited edition prints on display.The Gibson guitars on display have been designed by 12 of the most celebrated street artists from Brazil and the UK.

There are some great people behind this exhibition - Jimmy Page and his wife Jimena set up ABC (Action for Brazil's Children) charity, Dazed Digital are the media partners and Lorna Lavelle - celebrated film maker and sister of James Lavelle has created a film documenting the guy's trip to Brazil.

The private view was full of London's beautiful creative people and the show will be on between 23rd April and 12th May. I would recommend you go and check it out, too few people do such great things these days.
