Londoners Face Worlds Largest Ever Ice Crevasse
Apologies for the lack of postage over the last few days. Blog issues + mountains of work + man flu = not much posting! However, I have been sent this nice little time-lapse video of world famous street painter Edgar Muller achieving a new Guinness World Record, by creating the world’s biggest 3D pavement art outside Westfield London yesterday. He beat his own world record by covering an area of 330 square metres with a jaw-dropping wintry scene inspired by the family film Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, celebrating its launch on Blu-ray and DVD today.
The pavement art took six days to create and included the beloved Ice Age 3 characters Manny, Buck, Sid, Diego, Scrat and Scratte positioned over an icy crevasse. If you want to catch a look at the artwork it’ll remain at Westfield London for a further week.
Craig Glenday, Editor in Chief of Guinness World Records was on hand to verify the new world record, and commented: “Guinness World Records has been monitoring the fantastic work of Edgar Mueller for some time now, and we’re thrilled to be so closely involved with his latest record-breaking creation. Children – and adults – around the world are blown away by Edgar’s eye-popping landscapes, and he truly deserves a place in the record books taking the art of pavement of drawing to stratospheric new levels.”
