3D Street Art at The Festival of World Culture

Last August, Edgar Mueller continued his series of large-scale 3D street paintings at The Festival of World Cultures in Dun Laoghaire, Ireland. This video documents the transformation of the city’s East Pier into a dramatic ice age scene.

    So cool! I love optical illusions.

    Reminds me of Einstein and his belief that the universe is an optical delusion!

    I get those e-mails with photos of his drawings and am amazed at his talent. I can’t even draw a straight line with a ruler.

    I’d like to see that.
    It looks like if you were just walking a long, you might think you were on the edge.

    There’s a few slideshows of more of his projects here: http://www.metanamorph.com. The one with lava flowing down the street seems like it might cause a few wrecks, but you also have to be at that one precise spot to get the full effect of the illusion. I love this kind of stuff…very close to the Trompe l’oeil used inside and outside of buildings. Check out the “flat” dome on this ceiling: Jesuit Church Ceiling in Vienna.

  5. Seeing this technique unfolded is a treat. I didn’t realize he involved so many people? What kind of paint, I wonder?

    Love this guy.

    That flat church ceiling is amazing!

  7. JoeC says:

    Yeah, looking at that church ceiling and all the others…you can just tell those medieval folks had nothing but time and the plague on their hands :-)

  8. They just saw their work as more than a paycheck.

  9. Bo says:

    “Nothing but time and the plague on their hands” is poetry. :-)

    Thanks, Bo. It’s nice not to be the only demented person in the room :-)
