The Prize

Bid on a one-off piece of art painted by Pete Doherty on the soundboard of one of the most iconic acoustic guitars ever created, the legendary Gibson J45.

This unique artwork was inspired by the song "The Steam," a true masterpiece in its own right.

The artwork was created for NO STRINGS ATTACHED, an artistic project featuring over fifteen famous musicians and performers.

Pete Doherty

Pete Doherty is one of the most promising musicians, poets, singers and lyricists to shine on the horizon of the British music industry. From his childhood days, Doherty had developed a passion for guitar and poetry. Being a visionary, he would perfectly combine his passion, enthusiasm and hard efforts to form three successful bands: ‘Libertines’, ‘Babyshambles’ and ‘Peter Doherty and the Puta Madres’. 

Although he faced a lot of challenges due to his drug habits, Doherty never gave up, providing music lovers with evergreen masterpieces. While he still continues to do so, he has never chased commercial success.
