Two of Rock’s greatest guitarists are featured in artworks on sale to benefit a charity that helps vulnerable children in Brazil.
Portraits of Queen guitarist Brian May and Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page are available to benefit the ABC Trust, a charity established by Page. Both rockers are patrons of the charity.
Brian May’s portrait is a stunning composite made up of a photo provided personally by the legendary musician. The original photo has been divided into 12 parts and painted in the individual styles of 12 different Oak Apple Art artists. The finished work is available for £250.
Jimmy Page’s signed portrait is a silk screen work produced by Sandra Lawrence, and each print measures approximately 30" by 31".
Proceeds from each portrait go to the ABC Trust and Task Brazil, which runs projects in Brazil to improve the lives and supports the needs of children and pregnant teenage girls living on the streets of Brazil. Jimmy Page donated money to Task Brazil in 1997 that was used to buy a plot of land in Santa Teresa on which ‘Casa Jimmy’ was built to provide a safe and happy home for a lucky few of the abandoned children.
To view and order the portraits, visit the ABC Trust website.
