Jeans painted by Alison Coulthurst

A pair of Paul Stanley’s (famous rock frontman from band KISS) blue jeans has been delivered to Byron artist Alison Coulthurst to paint for the Jeans for Genes charity auction.
 
The jeans have been worn and signed by the famous charismatic Paul Stanley (stipulation is that the celebrity must have worn them). Alison has painted the jeans of many celebrities. Her painting of Sting from the band Police attracted a record $20,000 at a previous fundraiser.

Alison says, ‘painting a “famously face painted” rock legend was exciting and inspiring. I wanted to keep the drama of this great “creature of the night” alive!’ Ali’s next solo exhibition is at Remeura Gallery in Auckland from 29 August.
