The exhibition brings together specially commissioned works by 11 artists to highlight the fact that one in 11 men will develop prostate cancer - the most common male cancer. Each piece measures 175 x 60cm - the dimensions of the average man, according to the charity.

"By using urban art, this is helping the charity get the message across to young men in a way that's not embarrassing," said Owen.
