"Comfort of the Modern Slave" Street Art by Alex Void on Hackney Road

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Last summer, Hackney Road gained two new large-scale murals almost opposite each other. I had previously covered the artwork "Big Smoke" by Pref and Gary Strange, which was replaced by Senna early this year. However, I forgot to cover the mural across the road (almost opposite) by Axel Void, which is titled "Comfort of the Modern Slave".


Axel Void is an artist born in Miami, but his background is Spanish and Haiti. He has lived in Europe but now resides in Miami. His work is inspired by classical art, but it tells a story with focus on social, humanitarian, political, and other causes.


I have not walked this far down Hackney Road for awhile, so I am unsure if this mural still exists.
