M.C.Escher – the visual mathematician

Hi again :).

And the free caricature today, goes to – M.C.Escher.

I love his impossible constructions (check the Penrose Triangle here) and exploration of infinity.

Look at that face ! Does he not look like a true genius? In my first and only graphic novel (still unpublished), I dedicated a page to his infinity (I actually copied it). Here it is…

M.C.Escher was a dutch graphic artist who was more a mathematician. His work is extraordinary (However, he was greatly influenced by another master, Koloman Moser from Austria).

His art continues to amaze and wonder millions of people all over the world. And he shows us that reality is wondrous, comprehensible and fascinating.

My favorite fashion designer of recent times – Alexander McQueen (passed away a couple of months back) who dressed Lady Gaga and Rihanna, was thoroughly inspired by Escher too.

Thanks and see you on Monday 😉
