M.C. Escher is probably most known for his impossible architecture and landscape drawings, showcasing his play on perspective and point of view to create structures which ultimately cannot exist.
As beautifully crafted as these images are, I have always been more captivated by Escher’s pattern works. His ability to create a fluid and seamless plane of repeated images fitting perfectly togather is both unrivaled and mind-boggling. I bought a thick book years ago which breaks down and analyzes the mathematical formulas behind his patterns, which I proceeded to start reading countless times. To this day, his work still makes little sense to me :)
