Coldplay are launching an exhibition of artist Mila Furstova's artwork for their number one album Ghost Stories.

The British group, fronted by Chris Martin, is setting up the London-based show to raise money for children's charity Kids Company.

The display will be open for three days in December this year (14) and all the work will be available for purchase, with prints on sale as well as original pieces.

A picture was posted on the group's page showing Martin signing one of the paintings.

He says, "Sometimes a piece of art looks exactly like you think your song sounds. On Ghost Stories, Mila somehow managed this time and time again. Her etchings showed exactly what we were trying to say."

The news comes amid reports Kids Company, which provides support for disadvantaged children across Britain, is facing closure unless it is given a big funding boost from the British government.
