Artwork by a schoolgirl from Brent will go on display on Transport for London’s website after it was commended in a poster competition.

Lisa Patel, a pupil at the Swaminarayan School in Brentfield Road, Neasden, was a runner-up in the Labyrinth Schools Poster Competition organised by TfL.

Lisa’s poster and eight others were given the thumbs up by Turner prize-winning artist Mark Wallinger who judged the London-wide contest.

The three winning entries will be displayed in London Underground stations from today.

More than 800 entries from 49 schools across 27 London boroughs entered the competition.

Mr Wallinger said: “It’s been wonderful to see such an impressive array of personal responses by so many children and young people across the city who I hope will continue to engage with the artworks and the ideas behind them for years to come.”
