Jake Aikman has become an overnight sensation in the street art world after painting this stunning seascape.
The new mural represents Jake’s largest painting to date, a painting he approached in the same way as his studio based paintings. The different stages of his work capture his layering technique and the materialization of the turbulent spirit of the Black Sea. Aikman’s works are characterized by the mystery and ambiguity of an isolated moment, intriguing seascapes that seems to suggest something hidden in the deep of the ocean.
