Daily Dose: M.C. Escher
M.C. Escher (1898-1972) was an artist born in the Netherlands. He primarily worked with print making and drawing. While these mediums are quite common, it is his mastery of perspective and in combination with his sheer creativity that allows his masterpieces to truly amaze. Shown below is but a small sample of the types of work he has done. Many of his images are architectural and are physical impossibilities if they were to be real. He’s drawn the Mobius Strip (the never ending loop) but takes it to another level. His pattern work is amazing in that they are incredibly precise. Despite all of the seemingly perfect illusions of perspective and the calculations in his work, he was able to include a level of kwirkiness that makes his work appealing to numerous levels of audience.
