MC ESCHER - Art of Illusion

Maurits Cornelius Escher was a Dutch graphic artist. He is known for his often mathematically inspired woodcuts,lithographs, and mezzotints. His work explores unexplored perspectives and features impossible constructions. He experiments with reflections, transformations, tessellations, negative vs positive spaces, illusions of the infinite, and impossible worlds.

“In high school, I was a particularly poor student in math. Imagine, now mathematicians treat me as their long lost brother. Most of the time I don’t even know what they are talking about.”
