International mural artist leaves his mark on power station

A world-famous street artist has created his final parting gift before leaving the city.

Gustavo Nénão, 35, has had a number of high profile commissions across London this Summer, his latest work celebrates history and heritage by captivating an iconic image of workers sitting on top of Battersea Power station.

The artist gathered public interest earlier this summer with his Bankside painting ‘coming home’, he is now leaving the capital to go back to Brazil. The artwork is an addition to the regeneration of Battersea Power Station and can be found under Grosvenor Bridge at one of the entrances to Circus West Village.
