Untitled 2

Happy ruddy monday! I do not have the energy to write a full-blown blog entry so I am just going to amaze you by posting some images I have stumbled across recently... Below is the work of a Mr Edgar Mueller aka "super artist"!



















Together with up to five assistants, Mueller painted all day long from sunrise to sunset. The picture appeared on the East Pier in Dun Laoghaire, Ireland, as part of the town's Festival of World Cultures.


























For this image he actually spent five days, working 12 hours a day, to create the 250 square metres of it, which, viewed from the correct angle, appears to be 3D. I also like the fact he has managed to get passer-bys to complete the illusion by pretending the gaping hole was real...

Wow! Those are amazing paintings. There are a few chalk artists who do perspective type drawings similar to those. The chalk festivals in San Diego and San Francisco and LA Art Walk feature them often, and they're absolutely stunning. Julian Beever is the most famous artist who does them.
