Year 3 pupils at St Joseph's Catholic Primary School in the borough and year 6 pupils from Charlotte Sharman Primary School just off St George's Road worked with local artists Reuben Powell and Agnes Mitchell to create the striking images.

The children visited the 11th floor of the London College of Communication to make sketches of the view which they then used to create the large-scale charcoal drawings.

The exhibition is on the upper level of the Elephant & Castle Shopping Centre until 18 September.
