First we observe and understand the basic elements of the subject, then we use our imagination to make our own unique artistic creation!
A master of manipulating perspective, MC Escher is always a favorite with the students. He is a wonderful art entrance into math/geometry as well as shading and perspective drawing.
MC Escher (1898-1972) was a Dutch graphic artist who made mathematically inspired woodcuts, lithographs, and mezzotints. He was a master at manipulating the visual space. With clean lines and attention to detail his unique style and limited color palette makes his numerous works easily recognizable. Interesting side note, he was not a good student of Math while in school, but his life's work involved mathematical concepts and ideas at the highest level.
Today, years later, his images are often referenced in film, magazine illustrations and household décor.
