TWO years of artistic development has been showcased in a GCSE art exhibition.

Pupils at Bromley High School exhibited work inspired by trips abroad and to museums at their school in Blackbrook Lane, Bickley on Monday, May 12.

The year 11 students' work begins with sketches and paintings made in Florence, inspired by the city's ancient streets and Uffizi Gallery. Further ideas were gained for their second unit by sketching African pots and masks at the British Museum. Olivia Vaughan, 16, considered the works of Banksy and Jenny Holzer to develop her piece Barriers against Civilisation.

She said: "I have used Police Tape, beer cans and chains with locks to represent violence, and then added MacDonald's packaging and Coke bottles to depict globalisation.
