MUSIC SAVES LIVES, the trusted conduit between music, entertainment and important life-saving causes, has joined forces with GIBSON GUITAR in an effort to raise money and awareness of life saving issues by auctioning off four specially designed Gibson Les Paul guitars.
These one-of-a-kind, hand painted, Gibson Guitar custom guitars were created in hopes that they encourage, educate, and support the life saving efforts made by MUSIC SAVES LIVES. Each masterpiece was painted by one of two amazing artists, Josh Kenyon and Colby Nichols, in its raw, unassembled state then put together to create an irreplaceable work of art. In addition, each decked out guitar has been autographed by music artists who support MSL and all that they aspire to do. With these special collector’s items, MUSIC SAVES LIVES and Gibson Guitar hope to reach out and bring people together who share a common passion of helping those with life threatening issues.
The title and artist of each dynamic design are as follows:
“Save A Life” – artist Josh Kenyon, autographed by Pennywise
Up for bid now!
“A Household Nightmare” – artist Colby Nichols, autographed by Meg & Dia
“Beware of Friends” – artist Josh Kenyon, autographed by Bad Religion
“To the Depths We Sink” – artist Colby Nichols, autographed by Coheed & Cambria
Each of the guitars above will be put on the auction block by Unite the United Foundation. In addition, a fifth Les Paul is now on display at the San Diego Art Institute gallery, soon to be exhibited at venues nationwide. Donated by Gibson Guitar, these guitars represent the history as well as the future of the electric guitar. The models whose designs have become classics are a testament to Gibson Guitar wide appeal, spanning more than four decades of music styles.
Approaching his work with a light-heart, Colby Nichols’ love for line and shape mix with his humor and passion for oddity to create complex stories that guide us to the very core of his strange brain. Using painstaking detail, Josh Kenyon illustrates scenes filled with complex patterns and intricate line-work. His style pushes limits of the mind making it easy to get lost in his mesmerizing work. Both Josh and Colby graduated with honors from the Art Institute of California, San Diego.
Since its start in 2005, the MUSIC SAVES LIVES community has grown to be a trusted source for young individuals that care about life-saving issues. MSL has focused its main efforts on blood donation and the bone marrow registry, reaching out by sharing facts and educating.
