‘Zwart op Wit’

 

Under his alias Zenith, internationally acclaimed actor Matthias Schoenaerts has been active as a muralist for three decades. His unwavering passion for creating an impact through art has resulted in eye-catching murals across the world. In the past years Zenith has developed a fascination for the unexpected beauty of imperfection. During his many travels, he started photographing so-called defects, such as fissures in the pavement or cracks in the road. With his work, he brings them back to life by magnifying them and incorporating them in monumental murals that often adress social or historical issues. For North West Walls, Zenith painted “Zwart op Wit” a huge portrait of Sanda Dia. “I created this work out of deep indignation for the injustice that was, and still is done to Sanda and his family”
