M.C. Escher GIFs will f*ck with your head (20 GIFs)
Nerd out time with one of my personal guilty pleasures…my favorite artist: M.C. Escher.
I still remember the week in math class when we learned about “tessellations”. We spent that week checking out art by this magician of math infused art and IT WAS AWESOME.
Hope ya enjoy a few of his works in a unique GIF format.
Born back in 1898, this Dutch mad genius was a pioneer in the world of graphic arts.
Stating the obvious, he didn’t have computers for help.
Escher made every work of art by carving out a woodcut template for the ink-press (lithographs).
Imagine the time he spent making the details.
Then add math to it all.
Yep, crazy in the most awesome way.
Ok, ok…enough eye twitching.
Seriously, when ya find some time,
Check-out this awesome documentary on M.C. Escher.
