Edgar Mueller

The Ideal Home and Garden - - Artist Speak -

Edgar Mueller al­ways loved sketch­ing.The day he saw a chalk paint­ing on the street, he knew he had found his pas­sion for street art. Edgar says, “I have been paint­ing and sketch­ing since I was able to hold a brush. With the pas­sage of time, I fell head-over-heels in love with paint­ing on the street. I was al­ways an au­to­di­dact, fol­low­ing the prin­ci­ple ‘Learn­ing by do­ing’. I still re­main loyal to the phi­los­o­phy that ev­ery so­lu­tion you find out your­self, you will never for­get,” says the artist. Edgar uses wa­ter­based acrylic paint for large-scale paint­ings. He says, “Bad weather can ruin hours of work. I have to watch the sky and adapt my work process to the weather fore­cast. But, once the paint is dry, it can stand any rain.” As an artist he be­lieves that what­ever ef­fect his work might have, it should be last­ing. On a part­ing note he says, “Ev­ery artist wants to reach peo­ple and evoke feel­ings. But, a pic­ture that has al­ready said ev­ery­thing on be­ing seen once is not worth a sec­ond look.”
