M. C. Escher’s first print of an impossible reality was Still Life and Street, made in 1937. After this, works of art by M.C. Escher could never be mistaken for someone else’s. His artistic expression was based on creating images from his mind, rather than directly from his surroundings.

Everybody knows the works of M.C. Escher, but after getting closer acquainted with the man who created some of the most iconic optical illusions ever made, all these works are being lighted in a different perspective.
