Identity Mystery Woman Northern Quarter

Identity Mystery Woman Northern Quarter

Mural by artist Akse in the Northern Quarter

The stunning work from renowned graffiti artist Akse appeared on a wall near the NCP car park on Thomas Street over the weekend prompting plenty of admiration.

But no one seemed certain on the woman's identity, with guesses ranging from Spice Girl Mel C to TV presenter Christine Lampard.

Now it has emerged that the portrait is of Nicola Mendelsohn, a Manchester businesswoman who went on to become one of the most senior bosses at Facebook.

Sadly, Nicola is battling an incurable form of cancer at just 48-years-old.

She commissioned the mural in the Northern Quarter to announce the launch of a new charity, the Follicular Lymphoma Foundation with the aim of finding a cure for the disease.
