A new mural has been created at Artworks Elephant by young artist Ibiye Camp. In keeping with the community focus of the venue, the mural celebrates the famous people who grew up and lived in the borough of Southwark.

It goes as far back as Michael Faraday, who was born in Southwark, right through to Peckham rapper Giggs.

Other recognisable names include Sir Michael Caine, singer Florence Welch, former wrestler Giant Haystacks and Dora Dixon Fyle — the current mayor of Southwark.

The mural is on display at The Artworks Elephant, Elephant Road, SE17 1AY
