Optical Illusions by Maestro Madonnari – Edgar Mueller

One of the most talented street art genii is certainly fascinating Edgar Mueller who does not require much introduction to the fans of optical illusions concepts. Born during the year of 1968 in Mulheim an der Ruhr, Mueller grew up in Straelen a rural city on the western edge of Germany near the border with the Netherlands. According to his parents, Edgar was drawing ever since he was able to hold a brush, showing an incredible insight into composition and organization. Around the age of 25, Mueller dedicated himself purely to street art and during the year 1998, Edgar meritoriously earned the elite title of Maestro Madonnari, an honor awarded at the world’s largest street painting celebration, The Grazie Festival. “Besides personal messages and different layers of questions and sometimes even answers – I guess I´m mainly questioning the daily perception and experience of people by changing the appearance of public places,” artist shares. The best way to get introduced to Mueller’s art is to visit his official website: metanamorph.com
