Thalia Heffernan skirted around her boyfriend’s “no pics” rule by posting a shot showing his face half submerged in an infinity pool in the Philippines.

Model Thalia (21) has been dating the graffiti artist Maser for a few months, but they have generally steered clear of the spotlight when it comes to their romance.

The reluctant celebrity, whose real name is Al Hester (31), usually avoids being photographed altogether and rarely gives interviews.

He has said he just likes his work to “stand out” and would rather be the mess-enger than the focal point of his art.

The couple flew off at the weekend, with Thalia saying it took them two days to make the gruelling journey to Makati.

She also posted a picture of her passport, which showed her middle name to be Angel.

Maser, who has worked for everyone from Brown Thomas to Prada and Coachella, has travelled the world with his work.

His career in the art world has gone from strength to strength in recent times, and he even spoke at the Tate Modern in London last week.

His latest exhibition, Orbiting On The Periphery, is at London’s Lazarides gallery where it will run until May 5.

No stranger to dating models, the Dubliner was previously in a relationship with TV presenter Vogue Williams.

The pair went their separate ways in 2011 after five years, with Vogue going on to marry former Westlife singer Brian McFadden.
