M.C. Escher

A great master of rhythmic repetition. M.C. Escher is among the most fascinating art of the twentieth century. He was born in Netherlands, in 1898. In 1922 he went to Italy where he studied until 1934. Escher later lived in Switzerland and Belgium before returning to the Netherlands, where he died in 1972. Primarily an artist, he was also a mathematician, photographer, architect, and visionary. His works are really amazing, i sometime find myself staring at it and wander how can he come up with stuff like these.

Link to his bio and works Check out his symmetry drawings under the gallery, its pretty cool.
