Akse P19 Hits Shoreditch

On Saturday Shoreditch was treated to a visit from Akse, a French Street Artist of Vietnamese origins, who has been based in Manchester since 1997. Akse started painting in 1992 and became a member of the P19 Crew in 1993. Although Akseinitially started his Graffiti career by writing Letters, he quickly decided to specialise in character work and in recent years Akse has focused on freehand photo-realistic graffiti portraits. As is the case with this superb depiction of actor Samuel L. Jackson from the movie Pulp Fiction, placed up in Great Eastern Street, Shoreditch with support from Global Street Art as part of their Walls Project.
