Amazing 3D Street Illusions by Edgar Mueller

Who isn’t awed by the amazing 3D street art paintings of Edgar Mueller, and other pavement artists? They create illusions which use a public space, such as urban centers, town squares, streets and sidewalks. 3D pavement art is labelled as a type of performance art in that artists work in view of the general public and people passing by - and get to see their reactions. These people often participate with the art piece by standing near the edge as if trying to avoid falling in, and also pose for photos. The paintings are also temporary, and prone to changes in weather.

Here is what Edgar Mueller has to say when questioned about the effect he wants his street paintings to have on people: “Beside the personal messages, questions and sometimes answers in my paintings I'm questioning experienced daily perception of people by changing the appearance of public places.”
