Famous artist M.C. Escher was born June 17, 1898 in Leeuwarden, Netherlands. M.C. Escher created an art style that played with orientation and space. Later embraced  by both artistic and math/sciene communities.M.C. Escher died march 27th 1972.

M.C. Escher’s art often was perspective art and he used lots of math related techniques like the golden ratio, and using diagonal lines to create a perspective.

personally M.C. Escher is one of my top 3 favourite 20th century artists the other two being Salvador Dali and Keith Haring
