Edgar Krill, a Finalist of the "Show Your World" International Art Competition.
Already in his early childhood Edgar Krill tried to develop new ideas. He wanted to tell a story and finally I made three books for children with his own drawings. During the following years he discovered the Japanese Ink Wash Painting, developed his own style simultaneously learning the Japanese language to be able to catch the spirit of the paintings. Later Edgar studied the oil painting and dived in the fineness of that. These diverse techniques inspired him to go on further.
Every house is unique and has its own history and character like an individual. Together they form an old settlement with an individual history of beginning, full life and ending. The houses and the whole city are left by human beings and their animals. Solely the spirit of the houses remains, now more obvious than ever before. There is no distraction. The river through the city ends as slowly as the city did. There is no agitation, no kerfuffle. But also the river is not the same as in his beginning. Or only the river is the same as in the beginning.
