These brilliantly cool Gibson guitars have been customized by 12 of the finest artists from Brazil and the UK in aid of The ABC Trust in an effort to help raise funds and awareness for Brazil’s most vulnerable children.

The project is called ‘A Força da Rua’ which means ‘Force of the Street’ and has brought 12 exclusive contemporary street artists together, including Pure Evil (uk), D*Face (uk), Calma (Bra), Tinho (Bra) and Remi/Rough (uk).

Gibson guitars have donated 12 of their most iconic guitars for the cause and these will be exhibited at an east London show and be sold at a high profile charity art auction at the Cuckoo Club in Central London.

The ABC Trust educates through art and cultural projects in child centers and projects in Brazil. What a lovely way to show and share artistic inspiration with kids.

The artists involved are: D*Face, Kid Acne, Inkie, Remi/Rough, Will Barras, Pure Evil, Speto, Ramon Martins, Calma, Titi Freak, Daniel Melim and Tinho.
