So wish I could be in London for this exhibition.  It looks really amazing.

As part of Youth Music's 10th Anniversary, more than 70 of the world's biggest musicians and artists create artwork out of their original Rankin portraits.

More pics after the jump. 

Youth Music Week organised by children's music charity Youth Music is in full swing at the moment and to celebrate Youth Music's a10th Birthday, they have teamed up with Rankin to ask 70 musicians and visual artists to effectively 'destroy' their own portraits taken by the iconic photographer, and create original pieces of art. The stellar roll call of names includes Joe Strummer, Ian Brown, Marianne Faithfull, Andre 3000, Michael Stipe and Kylie Minogue as well as bands like Pete and the Pirates, The Enemy and The View, inspired by Rankin's son Lyle and his love of music.

Most of the portraits have been 'destroyed' by the artists themselves.
