Silhouetted man face in the shadows of Manchester

Despite it being illegal for street or graffiti artists to paint the wall of public buildings, it is a feature seen widely in parts of the city. Graffiti is used as a means of self-expression in public. Some pieces of street art are used as a means of expressing social or personal comments.
Did you know?
This is an amazing piece of art in it's own right and the style is quite unusual for street art. There's more than one copy of this image around the city so maybe it is stencilled. How do you think it has been created? Spray-paint?
