Nicole Kidman is honored with a huge mural painted on a side of an apartment building in Sydney’s Darlinghurst.
Kidman has been praised for her performance as Grace Fraser in HBO’s new psychological thriller The Undoing. Now, the actress is able to celebrate the show’s success with the large mural commissioned by streaming service BINGE.
The painting, which is roughly the size of an Olympic swimming pool, is said to be the largest “hand-painted portrait” in the Southern hemisphere. The portrait saw the actress’ striking facial features complete with her strawberry blonde locks.
The mural required the help of 11 artists from Apparition Media, and painted over the span of two weeks. Speaking about the mural, BINGE’s executive director Alison Hurbert-Burns said, “We’re so excited to be able to share The Undoing with Australia. Not only is it some of the world’s best drama, but it stars Nicole Kidman – so we just had to do something big to celebrate the show in her hometown. And what better way to mark the year’s biggest thriller, with the biggest portrait Australia has ever seen.”
“After nearly three weeks of project planning and painting, we’re so excited to finally reveal this stunning portrait to Australia. This has been an incredible undertaking from the team who have pounced and painted, with a few stops and starts caused by some very unpredictable weather,” Tyson Hunter from Apparition Media, whose team painted the portrait, said.

Just finished episode one of THE UNDOING and I’m hooked. I’m pleased I didn’t know it starred Lily Rabe, it made the surprise even sweeter. Also, everything about Nicole Kidman is on point. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/flxsjsAAVG— Ollie Charles 🏳️🌈🏳️⚧️🇪🇺 (@OllieCharles) November 14, 2020
