You probably all heard about 3D street painting or even got “stuck” in such a fantastic scenery. For now, we won’t get into the history and other definitions of these specific contemporary art expressions, as we plan on elaborating that in a vast post. We will let you get surprised or curious about these new ways of expressing dreams, fears, memories of lost ages, weird things that can only be imagined. And we consider that a proper introduction would be to showing you the works made by one of the most appreciated 3D street artists, Edgar Mueller (Germany). This master of street painting uses the street as a canvas for its pavement art and if one looks from the right spot, his three-dimensional painting becomes the perfect illusion. His main goal is to give a new appearance to urban public life, challenging the people to imagine themselves as characters or to sense a new imaginary environment. You will find more about Edgar Mueller’s work here.

5. Duality – where the smog made the colors looked pale, disguised by the dense filter. The horizon looked particularly blurred.
