Stefan Thelen is the man behind Super A. His great interest in different painting techniques and his background in graphic design, made him combine painting with three-dimensional work. The murals are high metaphoric scenarios rendered in hyperrealism. He creates his own world with realistic images and fantasy figures, combined with a subtle, but harsh critique on social or political issues.
On this wall Sleeping Beauty and the cotton plants refer to the textile history of the city. Elderly people that live in the building on which the work appeared asked Super A to also include some nature in his painting.
