Seven Sins Mural Adds Unexpected Subtext to Disney Princess Dolls

The new Seven Sins Mural by Dutch artist Leon Keer was painted in studio on canvas before being installed on location in Amersfoort. What at first look like packaged Disney Princess Dolls (no actual affiliation with Disney) on a shelf has an unexpected subtext when examined more closely.

The Seven Sins Mural

Leon Keer is a well-known 3D street artist and muralist whose three dimensional looking paintings on buildings and sidewalks have brought him much attention.

His recently completed Seven Sins mural measures 27.8 x 12′ (850 x 375cm) was made in collaboration with the Wanrooij Gallery and created for HelloFlex group in The Netherlands.

For this particular installation, Keer painted seven different packaged dolls made to resemble Disney Princesses as if displayed in a toy store.
