posted 22 Sep 2009, 06:36 by The Editor


While Green Day where making their new album "21st Centuary Breakdown" they commissioned 21 original pieces of art work inspired by the album.  The paintings will be shown exclusively at the StolenSpace Gallery in Shoreditch, East London from 22nd of October until 1st of November to coincide with Green Day’s sold out UK concert tour and opening the day before the band’s two sold-out performances at the O2 Arena in London.
The show's curator, artist, Logan Hicks, said that the gallery will feature contributions from an international pool of artisans, such as world renowned New York-based painter Ron English, Amsterdam-based street artists The London Police, French stencil artist C215, British illustrator Will Barras along with artists Eelus, Chris Stain, Sixten, Adam 5100 and more. Each of the collaborating artists were each sent through a lyric sheet and asked to produce a piece of art that reflected that song, to highlight the connection between music and art.
A number of the participating artists were featured with Hicks in Banksy’s “Cans Festival which took place last year in an abandoned taxi tunnel behind Waterloo Station and attracted over 120,000 people on opening weekend.
