Two lifts at a south London Underground station have been transformed into a public art gallery.

Students from the City and Guilds of London Art School have used 20 A1-sized panels inside the lifts, usually used for adverts, to display their work.

The 'Art Lift' has been organised by art agency Art Below which comes up with new ways to display art in public spaces in London.

The artwork will be on display at Kennington station until 12 September.

Students at the City and Guilds art school are taught the traditions of painting, sculpture and printmaking within a contemporary context.

The public art display coincides with the Cleaver Square-based school's fine art show next week.
