AKSE P19 “Master of Hyperrealism”

Akse artworks are unbelievably photorealistic. You won’t believe your eyes! He’s probably one of the most talented street artist of his time.

Remember his portrait of David Bowie in Manchester that has been getting everyone talking on social networks. Remember Amy Winehouse spraypainted graffiti portrait in Bricklane London…

People inspire this fantastic Street Artist. This is probably the main reason why he paints portraits.
