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 Sarasota Chalk Festival, the featured artist 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]
