Popular local artist Terry Bradley is lending his trademark artistic style for a special collaboration to create a unique, artisan instrument for a draw in aid of Action Mental Health.
The renowned artist has teamed up with Chris Moffitt of Kithara Guitars to produce a beautifully-painted, hand-crafted six string in an initiative which aims to focus on men’s mental health.
Terry and Chris were first introduced by Simon Cordner, owner of Windmill Guitars and business neighbour of the Bradley Gallery on High Street in Bangor.
The pair soon found common ground, not only in their love for art and music, but also in similar experiences with poor mental health, inspiring them to collaborate in an effort to open up the often taboo conversation with other men.
Recognising that many men still find it very difficult to talk about their mental health, Terry and Chris set out to fundraise for Action Mental Health to help distigmatise the subject.
For their project, Terry applied his emotive artistic flair to hand paint an electric guitar, handcrafted by Chris. Members of the public are being invited to make a donation of £10 or more to be entered into a draw to win the bespoke guitar.
