Shark street art created by Edgar Müller in Hong Kong

Edgar Müller (born 1968, Mülheim, Ruhr, Germany, often transliterated Mueller) is considered by at least one author to be "one of the world's top 3-D illusionist street painters",[1] "one of the best known street painters in the world thanks to his YouTube videos",[2] and has been featured as "Maestro Madonnaro" at the Sarasota Chalk Festival.[3]

At the Avenida de Colores, Inc. Müller created a 100' x 40' 3-D street painting that is the first known contemporary street painting that metamorphosed from one image to another with the change from day to night because the painter used photoluminescent paints.

At the Sarasota Chalk Festival, the featured artist, Vera Bugatti, and Müller, created a 3-D street painting that made history as well. For the first time in history a street painting was designed to metamorphose, the image changing from day to night from a giant into a fetus in the uterus, through the use of photoluminescent paints. It measured 100’ x 40’.[4]
