Happy Birthday to artist M. C. Escher born on this day in 1898. A printmaker at heart, Escher is most known for his skillfully done woodcuts, lithographs, and mezzotints. The artist focused mostly on mathematically inspired themes featuring impossible architectural constructions, explorations of infinity, and tessellations.
Escher’s work is featured in museums and other institutions all over the world, the primary location being the Escher Museum in The Hague.
We love his mesmerizing designs – we just can’t seem to look away!
