Akse is a French graffiti artist of Vietnamese origins who started painting, particularly spraypainting walls, in 1992.

His work is incredibly photorealistic and murals of popular characters and icons are scattered throughout Manchester, UK, where he is based.

Recently, the street artist paid tribute to HBO blockbuster series Game of Thrones, by painting a large portrait of Arya Stark, one of the leading characters of the fantasy series. He also made a portrait of his favorite GoT character, Tyrion Lannister, in the district of Shoreditch in London. This is the second time he painted the character, the first time was in Hulme Manchester back in 2014.
