Fitzrovia street art on traffic light control boxes

One of central London's most expensive areas is becoming a canvas for spray painting.

More than 100 local characters were photographed as part of an art project, with the most popular images being transformed into street art painted on traffic light control boxes in Fitzrovia.

The works are set to stay in place for the next five years.

BBC London's Katharine Carpenter spoke to the project's curator Lucy Williams, filmmaker Paolo Sedazzari, student Ella Taylor-Palfrey, artist Paul Don Smith and photographer Doralba Picerno.
