Nicole Kidman overjoyed as 18-storey portrait is unveiled in Sydney

A huge, 18-storey hand-painted portrait of Nicole Kidman has been unveiled over the weekend in Sydney, to celebrate the release of her new series, The Undoing.

On Monday, Kidman was filled with joy as she saw the artwork in person for the first time at the famous Kings Cross street.

"WOW! Thank you Sydney for celebrating #TheUndoing It's back tonight xx," she captioned alongside a picture of her standing below the giant mural.

The painting took 11 artists and over 400 hours to complete. It was placed on the side of the apartment building, Top of the Town, in Darlinghurst on Saturday and has made history for being the largest hand-painted mural in the Southern Hemisphere.

The portrait is the size of an Olympic swimming pool and was commissioned by BINGE to celebrate Kidman’s new series.

In the theme of the series, Kidman's portrait will "come undone" as it unravels into a second artwork from today, Tuesday November 17.

The project is temporary. The building will be painted over and restored back to its original state on November 23.

The Undoing, which Kidman stars in alongside actor Hugh Grant, tells the story of a Manhattan couple who are embroiled in a murder mystery.
