Asahi Super Dry, North Kensington

Back in 2011 London street artist Don realized several pieces at the newly reopened Earl of Portobello in North Kensington, including a superb painted sign for Japanese beer Asahi Super Dry.

Founded in 1889, Asahi Breweries Ltd is one of Japan's leading brewers. In 1987 it introduced Asahi Super Dry, which rapidly became its best selling beer.

There are a few differences between the actual label on the bottles and the sign painted here.

Below are some of the other works by Don that decorate the walls of the public house, including portraits of Charles Dickens and Amy Winehouse.

You're welcome Sam. The signature appears to the right of the bottle.
