SJ8498 : #CureFL

taken 1 year ago, near to Manchester, Great Britain

The former electricity substation outside the Tib Street multi-storey car park in the heart of Manchester's Northern Quarter is managed by The Outhouse, an outdoor project space for public art, and has developed something of a cult following in recent years. The once-inconspicuous brick building has been used as a canvas by some of Manchester's most talented street artists.

This portrait of charity campaigner Nicola Mendelsohn (@nicolamen) is by Akse_P19 (@akse_p19) the Manchester-based street artist who is known for his photorealistic portraits of pop culture icons. It has been created for the Follicular Lymphoma Foundation LinkExternal link to raise awareness of their work in trying to find a cure for this disease. Follicular Lymphoma is currently an incurable blood cancer that affects thousands of people but is little-known. Nicola, who attended Manchester High School for Girls, was diagnosed in 2016 and made the news public on World Cancer Day in 2018.
