Oasis and Paul Weller to exhibit guitars in London

Story by Jack Foley

OASIS singer-songwriter Noel Gallagher and Paul Weller are just two of the artists exhibiting giant guitars across London as part of a free art exhibition.

The skyline of the South Bank’s More London area, by City Hall, has been transformed into a public art display that will run for the next 10 weeks.

A total of 30 hand-painted 10ft high free-standing replica Gibson Les Paul guitars will be featured as part of the event and will celebrate bands including Oasis, Kasabian, Kaiser Chiefs, Graham Coxon and Razorlight among others.

Rock legends Robert Plant and Rod Stewart have also contributed to the event, with all bands decorating the guitars with their own unique designs.

Following the public display – which further includes an additional 30 hand-painted regular Gibson SG guitars on display within the newly opened O2 Arena in Greenwich – the guitars will form part of a charity auction later this year.

The proceeds will be divided between Teenage Cancer Trust, Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy and The Prince’s Trust.
