- Street art spanning 20 x 9 m by London-based artist Mr Cenz decorates building at Eichhornstraße 3
- Sleeping Beauty motif inspired by adjacent former residence of Grimm Brothers
Berlin, 31 August 2017 – A large-scale portrait of “Maleficent” from Sleeping Beauty remains four weeks more till the end of September in front of the building at Eichhornstraße 3 at Potsdamer Platz quarter. The mythical image is the creation of the famous street artist from London, Mr Cenz. The dimensions of the panel are 20 x 9 m – almost 180 square metres – and it is one of Berlin’s biggest street artworks to date. The panel was put up due to ongoing construction work being carried out at the building. The mural is located between Marlene-Dietrich-Platz and Tilla-Durieux-Park and on public display around the clock.
The motif is inspired by the Grimm Brothers, who lived in the neighbouring Linkstraße 7 building from 1847 to 1863. The wicked witch from Sleeping Beauty who puts a curse on the princess is the work’s central figure. Besides his home town of London, Mr Cenz’s works have been on display in Detroit, Las Vegas, Hamburg and other cities. The British artist’s surfaces of choice are walls, house facades and garages.
The large-scale artwork is part of a series of measures to enhance the ambience of Potsdamer Platz. These measures include temporary exhibitions and shows as well as major events. From September 29 on the Berlin Light Weeks with spectacular installations and light sculptures will take place at Potsdamer Platz among other locations.
