Edgar Müller's studio is the street. He paints over large areas of urban public life and gives them a new appearance, thereby challenging the perceptions of passers-by. The observer becomes a part of the new scenery offered. While going about their daily life, people change the painting's statement just by passing through the scene.


Edgar Mueller's latest 3D project

The artist puts down his first strokes as the scene begins to take shape.

Mueller paints stalactites to add realism and detail to his piece.

Mueller said he wanted the artwork to appear as if the cave was unearthed by an earthquake.
