AN exhibition, with some artists more used to displaying their skills on street walls, is on display at an Ealing Church on Saturday.
The graffiti and mural art has been produced by a youth club based in a deprived part of Kilburn, known as the Oxford Kilburn Club or OK club, named after its founders, a group of students from the Christian Union at Oxford University.
The club donated a wall of the club to the many young people in the area who liked to daub graffiti on whatever surface they could find - making their mark on the world. A graffiti expert has since encouraged them to switch their creativity to paper which in turn led to an art club and the current exhibition, a first.
The club, which has been visited by David Cameron, also provids a range of activities from sports, photography and cookery to educational visits, advice and support.
