Edgar Mueller Super
Artist
Great
Crevase Edgar Mueller. Hard work: 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.

He spent five days, working 12 hours a day, to
create the 250 square metre
image of
the crevasse, which, viewed from the correct angle, appears to be
3D.
He then persuaded passers-by to
complete the illusion by pretending the

gaping hole was real.
‘I wanted to play with positives and negatives to encourage people
to think twice
about everything they
see,’ he said. ‘It was a very scary scene, but when
people
saw it they had great fun
playing on it and pretending to fall into the earth.

‘I like to think that later, when they returned home,
they might reflect more on
what a
frightening scenario it was and say, “Wow, that was actually pretty
scary.”
Mueller, who
has previously painted a giant waterfall in Canada, said he
was
Inspired by the British ‘Pavement
Picasso’ Julian Beever, whose dramatic but

More gentle 3D street images have been featured in
the Daily Mail.
This guy is amazing no matter how
you look at it!
