The Crevasse

  • Title: The Crevasse
  • Artist: Edgar Müller
  • Date: August 2008
  • Material: Chalk
  • Size: Unknown
  • This work of art is done completely in chalk and it is located in Ireland. This may appear as an ice age to the common eye, but however it is a 3D side walk work of art.
  • Edgar Müller was born in Mülheim, Ruhr on 10th of July, 1968. He grew up in the rural city of Straelen on the western edge of Germany. His fascination with painting began in his childhood, with paintings of rural scenes of Straelen. Edgar went to high school in the neighboring town of Geldern, where an international competition of street painters took place. Inspired by the transitory works of art which met him on his way to school, Edgar Müller decided to enter the competition; He took part for the first time at the age of 16.
  • I chose this work of art because it looks as though it is fake but it is not and that was extremely surprising to me. This piece must have been very time consuming but the time put in was well worth it because the finished product is very beautiful and realistic.
