London art celebrates naked human body

The art of life drawing is being celebrated at the Mall Galleries this week.


The annual exhibition from the Hesketh Hubbard society opened on Tuesday 14th August, revealing the human body, in all shapes and sizes.


We spoke to one of the artists involved, Andrew Maginley, who says the practice has become increasingly popular with young Londoners.


He also told us about the invaluable outlook on life this form of art can provide.


The exhibition in St. James's runs until Sunday 19th August.
